Missouri Building Block Pedo Bear Award

I’m sorry to have to point this out, but the Missouri Building Block Picture Book Award “mascot” is quite creepy and reminiscent of Pedobear.  We received our promotional materials in the mail and I was so excited to read the nominees, then I saw the Bear! What in the world were Missouri Libraries thinking? The PB on the bears sweater is suppose to stand for “Picture Books,” but any pop culture savvy/techie librarian should know that PB on a BEAR (of all places) will be misconstrued. The facial expression of the bear doesn’t help at all either.
Evidence:

Someone had to notice this...

PB for “Picture Book?” Yea right…
