We work to give children in need the best opportunity to succeed in school and life, and encouraging reading together as a family early in a child's life is critical to that goal. Sadly, many families we serve have no children's books in the home when we start working with them.

01/25/16 12:26 PMStatement from Scholastic on Claim of Self-Censorship by Advocacy Groups - [PR Newswire] - PEN and the NCAC apparently did not correctly read Scholastic's statement that we had withdrawn the book, not because of criticism, but because it did not meet the standards which support our publishing mission. While we certainly read the unfavorable reviews and other critical comments, Scholastic's chief executive officer, Richard Robinson, determined that the book should be withdrawn because the book did not meet Scholastic's standards for appropriate presentation of complex subject matter in a picture book directed to young children. Although, as explained in the author's and illustrator's end notes to the book, it was the goal of the talented author, illustrator and editor to provide a story for children about the proud accomplishments of individuals despite their status as enslaved people, the story's portrayal of smiling children and of George Washington's enslaved cook did not meet that goal, because the story could not adequately explain the facts that would have also helped children understand the underlying conditions of slavery.
