Make copies of individual pages for the children in your household using the free PDF emailed to you during purchase of the physical unit. We will be placing an order for the physical books + pdfs December 1st so if you would like to save on shipping costs let Jordan or April know & we will order your family a copy ($25). Or you may purchase the print @ home pdf yourself for $17.
