At the beginning of March, the company that publishes the series of children's books by Dr. Seuss announced it would stop publishing six titles — including "And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street" and "If I Ran the Zoo" — because of racist and insensitive imagery. Dr. Suess Enterprises, an organization that preserves and protects the author's legacy, called the decision a business decision.

Titan Radio's Dr. David Barner talks with Todd Cole, Westminster alum and longtime award-winning elementary teacher, about the decision to pull the books.  Cole taps into his expertise on Dr. Seuss and unpacks some of the history and value of his creation and the decision to stop publishing some of his books.
