Reading Ideas

Looking for a Book?

Dear Parents and Students,
The lists below should be viewed as suggestions only.
Remember, each reader is unique and not all books are appropriate for all readers. As always, review the book first to determine its appropriateness for your maturity and family's values/comfort level. Use COMMON SENSE MEDIA as one way to get more information about the content.
