Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Rasputin: Mysteries of a Monk's Life and Death" by Mia Hodorovich.

“Rasputin: Mysteries of a Monk's Life and Death” introduces the life and death of the “Mad Monk,” a mysterious historical figure who wielded control over the last royal family of Russia.
