Why is This Banned!!

Eliana's Banned Book Poster


In Library we learned about banned books, and Mrs. Hallett showed us an example of a banned book poster.  We then picked a book to do our poster on, and I picked Olive’s Ocean by Kevin Henkes.  After we picked an app to make our poster on and I picked Google Drawing.  I researched why it was banned, and I figured out that it is banned because of offensive language and being sexually explicit.  Next, I had to complete a graphic organizer on what I needed in my poster.  I needed the title and author of the book, a picture of the book, a catchy title, why it is banned, a description of the book, if it won any awards, and of course a citation(s) of the website that you used to get your information.  After that I added all the information and the picture into my poster, it was done, easy as pie.  If I could do anything differently next time, I would probably make the poster cooler.

    Very nice poster, Elli! Not only do the blocks of color highlight each section of information, but I love that you’ve chosen the color red to highlight the challenged/banned parts of your poster. Also, I know that this was your first time using Google Drawing, so I commend you for experimenting with a new tool!

    BTW, have you read the book? I finished it a couple of weeks ago. Interestingly enough, I do not recall any offensive language or explicit passages. In fact, I really enjoyed the story.
