  • It is strongly advised, but not required, that you purchase a copy of each book for your child.
  • If your child has their own book they can make annotations, highlight, and underline important information as they read.
  • These skills are extremely important for your child’s growth as a thoughtful, analytical reader. They will have to turn in annotations as a book or on paper.
