** Notice For Parents**

The Reading Bowl Books contain a lot of heavy content and can be very emotional for students.  Some topics they may read about, but are not limited to are suicide, death, relationship issues, tragedy, and other sensitive social issues.  The Reading Bowl books are Georgia Book Award nominees for the upcoming year and often push the boundaries of children's literature. So, please be aware that your child may have questions when reading these books.
