To the Pa rent: We strongly recommend that you read all literary works before assigning them to determine whether or not they are appropriate for your students. If you are teaching two or more students who are close in age, have them read Tuck Everlasting at the same time so that they may discuss the book and work cooperatively. Also, consider collaborating with other homeschool families for group activities and projects.
