Dr. Seuss books or collections filled 20 of Amazon's top 25 bestselling books after it was announced that six of the iconic author's works would no longer be published after allegations that the books were racially insensitive.
This comes as President Joe Biden pulled Dr. Seuss' books from Read Across America Day, an initiative that was founded in the author's honor. The left-wing educators group called Learning for Justice demanded that Dr. Seuss books be removed from the reading list due to alleged "racial undertones" that are not suitable for "culturally responsive" learning in his children's books.

These books include "If I Ran The Zoo," Scrambled Eggs Super," and "And to Think That I saw It on Mulberry Street.
