Following nationwide celebrations for Dr. Seuss’s birthday March 2, his estate announced the release of new books featuring previously unpublished sketches by the author— suggesting that the beloved children’s author is no longer canceled.

It’s true that six “problematic” titles are no longer available for purchase because of alleged “racist and insensitive imagery” and themes. Now, however, the Dr. Seuss library is being redeemed by getting a small, potentially woke-friendly makeover. Dr. Seuss Enterprises announced the news Wednesday. The company was founded after the 1991 death of Dr. Seuss, whose real name is Theodor Seuss Geisel.

Apparently, a series of previously unseen sketches will be turned into Seuss-style literature that’s put together by an “inclusive” group of writers and artists hailing from “diverse racial backgrounds.” Several of the untitled projects are scheduled to be published by next year.

Reps from Dr. Seuss Enterprises promise that the storylines accompanying Geisel’s sketches will, “represent a diverse cross-section of racial backgrounds to represent as many families as possible.” The books will target young readers ages 4 – 8, the New York Post reported.
