Children uncover pornographic photo in Barney book ? (12/29/2002) (Bergenfield, New Jersey-AP) -- It's the last thing you'd expect to find in a children's music book.

Two children hoping to sing along with Barney the Dinosaur opened a book entitled ``Sing-Along Songs Barney'' -- only to find a photo of a man and woman in a naked embrace, with the words ``Wilder Sex.''

A New Jersey couple had bought the book for their four- and seven-year-old children.

An attorney for the family says the photo came from a review of porn movies published in a German-language magazine.

The Barney book's publisher has had similar problems in the past, which it's blamed on the China-based company that produces the books.

In a letter, the company says the photo ``is no more graphic than what's seen on magazines, billboards and T-V every day.''

The family's attorney says her clients don't plan to sue, but they do want some sort of apology -- and reassurance that ``Barney is pure.''



**I can't even imagine what I would do if my children were to open up a children's book and see something like that. I am sure I would be furious!!**

We had gone to a public library years ago and checked out childrens books for ds #3 when he was about 7.... He brought them home and found that someone had put porno pages in some of the books..... The libary was shocked but had no idea who had done such a thing...... Sad that there is no safe haven anymore....
