Counting On: Is Amy King Reading Daxton Racially Sensitive Books?

Counting On fans follow Amy King quite a lot these days as she had a lot to say about her cousin Josh Duggar. TLC fans also like her because she seems very kind towards her other cousin, Jill Dillard. Always supportive, fans appreciate that. Plus, she raises a cute little boy named Daxton. But, did she just buy him some books that fans might think are racially sensitive?

Counting On – Cancel Culture – Did Amy King Make An Error?

These days, cancel culture sees the demise of many TV shows, books, individuals, and some movies. What was quite fine a few years ago, might not be so great these days. In fact, the Duggar family show was canceled after Josh’s arrest and trial for possession of child pron. Understandably, folks agreed that TLC really couldn’t sustain supporting the show.

Counting On fans know that Amy King isn’t the biggest fan of her Uncle, Jim Bob Duggar. And, while she maintains a close relationship with Jill Dillard, she cut off some of the family, using the word “toxic.” So, her popularity grows. But did she just walk into a politically incorrect situation when she bought her son some books?

Counting On – Is Amy Buying The Wrong Books For Daxton?

On Saturday, May 21, Amy took to her Instagram Stories and shared that she did one of her favorite things. She went to a thrift shop and browsed around for a few hours. Actually, TLC fans know that sometimes, she and Jill Dillard get together to do that. Well, she found some nice toys for Daxton. Additionally, she found some books by Dr, Seuss.

Well, the books that Amy purchased were Green Eggs and Ham, Fox In Sox, and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. 

Amy’s Books Are Not Racially Sensitive

Counting On fans needn’t rush off and slam Amy King for the books that she bought her son, Daxton. In fact, the titles that were pulled included:

  • And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street
  • McElligot’s Pool
  • On Beyond Zebra!
  • The Cat’s Quizzer
