Shame on Scholastic

luv

Lauren Myracle’s Luv Ya Bunches will be missing from this year’s Scholastic book fairs. Why? One of the main characters has two moms.

Myracle says it best herself, ““Over 200,000 kids in America are raised by same-sex parents, just like Milla. It’s not an issue to clean up or hide away. In my opinion, it’s not an ‘issue’ at all. The issue, as I see it, is that kids benefit hugely from seeing themselves reflected positively in the books they read. It’s an extremely empowering and validating experience.”
