According to an Australian news site, the “Twilight” book series has been deemed too racy for children, and have been banned from elementary schools.
Librarians have stripped the books from shelves in some junior schools because they believe the content is too sexual and goes against religious beliefs, reports the Australian Daily Telegraph.
One Aussie school even ran a special class for young students explaining the “racy and supernatural themes” in the books.
Australian Catholic Education Office spokesman Mark Rix told the newspaper that “individual schools had to decide whether the books were suitable.”
Librarians have pulled the book from shelves, and parents were told not to allow their children to bring the books to school.
“It comes down to the discretion of the school to keep an eye on what the kids read,” said Rix. “Some primary students are not ready to read Twilight. That said, some secondary students may not be either.”
