I love the practicality and creativity of all these resources. I was just a tiny bit annoyed at this in PDF form so I can't change the letter. I was hoping to do a project with newberry books and wanted to change some information. It would have been a lot easier if it was not a PDF. The actual product is well worth the money and is a great resource.
On  March 14, 2014The Peanut Gallery answered:
Hi, Christina- I am happy you like this resource. I am sorry you are annoyed that the resource is in PDF. Please note that it does state that it is a PDF in the description. All of my products are in PDF due to copyright on the product as well as copyright on fonts, graphics, and backgrounds. Feel free to use my letter for ideas and type your own letter to parents to accompany the project. I hope your kiddos will enjoy this book report!
