York School Board Pulls Controversial Children’s Book

From Canadian Jewish News:

"The York Region District School Board has pulled a controversial children's book about the Middle East from the prestigious Silver Birch Awards reading program for older elementary school students, but the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) will continue to make the book available to its students.

The book, Three Wishes: Palestinian and Israeli Children Speak by award winning author and anti-war activist Deborah Ellis, focuses on the testimony of Israelis and Palestinian children, and includes their views on everyday life and the Mideast conflict."
