The Contents of This Book Aimed at Small Children Led a Parent to Complain — but the District Won't Be Removing It From Classrooms

"I don't think it's a good idea."

A local school board has voted to allow a book about a little girl with two mothers to remain inside district libraries and classrooms.

The Superior School Board in Superior, Wisconsin, voted Monday night against banning the book, titled, "Emma and Meesha My Boy: A Two Mom Story," from local schools after an unnamed parent waged an official complaint against it.

"This is a delightful story of little girl with two moms as she learns how to be nice to her cat," a description of the book reads. "Follow along as Emma gets in trouble trying to play with Meesha Kitty and cheer as she learns to treat him with care."

District officials concluded that it would be inappropriate to remove the book based on one parent's complaint, according to the Associated Press.

Steve Stupak was the sole official out of seven board members to vote in favor of banning the book, though, claiming that it is inappropriately aimed at young children in grades first through third, WDIO-TV reported.

"Older children, I think, can make their own decisions," he said during the meeting. "I think, in this particular case, I don't think it's a good idea."
