Popcorn by Frank AschThis old classic story is slated to be reissued as a board book by Simon & Schuster on July 25th, 2017. I cant say Im surprised theyd do something so monumentally stupid, especially after the whole awful Yiannopoulos debacle.
The book, as you can see by the cover, depicts a bear dressing up in a costume... which is actually just a stereotyped representation of Native Americans. I thought everyone knew this by now, but I guess S&S needs to hear it again: Native Americans are NOT COSTUMES.
Its 2017, folks. Just cause its a classic doesnt make it still good.
