The purpose in identifying these books is to show parents and guardians the texts your children may select to read from the school library or media center. These books are colorful, attractive, and appear innocent. However, these books may create confusion and misunderstanding without parent input. We do not know how many of these books are located in classroom libraries or available through apps and ebooks obtained through the school and use of school ID..
