Note to parents:
- Most students will read about half of their book list.
- The list is specifically balanced for grades 3-5 reading level and is age-appropriate in terms of interest and maturity.
- Because students learn differently, reading and listening to books are valid ways of ďreadingĒ in this program. (Movies donít count, though!)
- The books are all available in paperback and Walker will work to have all listed books available to kids.
- Itís free.
