This book contains a serious factual inaccuracy, as pointed out here:

Any thoughts or actions based on a claim like this one are probably useless, or even harmful, since the claim is incorrect, and such inaccuracies should not be tolerated in books intended to inform children about issues.  All libraries holding this title should get rid of it, and possibly replace it with a more up-to-date and accurate book on the issue.  Other children's books on this issue should probably be reviewed for accuracy as well, as misinformation is common in discussion of this subject.
