Emphasize the WARNING

To be honest, I thought I knew this book. I remember having read it, but I do not remember that by Chapter 7 we've already gone through "darkie" and "work like n******". I know that Amazon left a note that some of this was going to be inappropriate, but that note was at the end of the description. I kind of think that they should move it up a little bit and make it not available on Amazon Freetime. I get it it's a classic, and times were different. However, if I had I been reading this allowed in my classroom, I would have just changed a couple of words and would not have hurt the content of the story at all. The fact that this was recorded in 2010 and that wasn't done to make it appropriate is ridiculous. What is the point of having this book read if not to a child?
