Reshelving Alexandria Icon Key

Here's a key to what each of the icons used on Reshelving Alexandria mean.

Content Considerations

There is content in this book that some parents may want to be aware of. Sometimes this may mean a book isn't appropriate for some families or for some children. Some parents may want to preview some of these books or discuss them with their children. The book page will include the details of the content considerations that we have noted. Please note that we have not read every book that is included on the site so the absence of content considerations on a book does not mean that there is nothing to be aware of.
