My son brought home a list of books that he has to choose from to read this year. His teacher said that they have to be the original versions and not the watered down versions written at a 4th grade level or illustrated or abridged. If anyone has any of these, please let me know-this is just one of the four pages of titles. If you have anything else, feel free to message me to see if it is on the list. Sorry all I have is last names.
