What do the following titles have in common?

One thought on “Freedom to Read Week”

  1. I teach Harry Potter to my seventh grade students every year, and every year one or two parents have a problem with it. Usually, after I explain that I’m not trying to teach “witchcraft” to the students, they will allow their child to read the book, but I sometimes have to plan an alternative unit for students who are not allowed to read Harry Potter.

    Thanks for sharing this list! 🙂
