Grants Pass school removes book over portrayal of logging

AP, March 04, 2009 [here]

GRANTS PASS — A book about saving forests has been removed from first-grade classes in the Grants Pass School District after complaints about the way loggers are portrayed.

School officials say the decision was made after complaints over material in “Help the Forest” by Rita Crosby.

The Daily Courier newspaper in Grants Pass said complaints included a letter to the editor from a man who read the book when his grandson brought it home from school.

The book shows a photo of a logger cutting down a tree with a chain saw while another photo shows litter. The text accuses loggers of not taking care of the forest.
