Is the workbook necessary for this course?
Trying to pinch pennies as we have very few, lol.
I'm really surprised people would suggest making copies of a book unless it is labeled as "reproducible." Does anyone know if it truly is? If it is not, I'm really surprised.
It sounds like from this link that the book is NOT sold as a reproducible.
Do people not realize that copying a book that is not reproducible is wrong? Kind of like stealing?

I have several different curriculums that say I can purchase one workbook and make copies for my family only. Meaning, I cannot give it to a friend to copy or I copy it for them.
You have to admit is very customer friendly to allow your customers to do that in this day and age where every penny matters...and it does give them a good customer base. Seriously, I may only have two kids (three years apart) but if I cannot copy a workbook for the second child or even one they are using together, I generally will move on to find a company that will allow me to make copies for my family only. Granted there are exceptions but most of our curriculum is "allowed copying for family".
Thanks for the links, LDIMom. They live in the same town as my sister. =)
The first review said her book said not to copy, so I checked my edition, copyright 1992, 1998. I bought this about 2 years ago. My student book specifically states:
"Notice of limited copyright permission: This is a family business with limited resources. If you appreciate our efforts and would like us to continue to create new products, please limit photocopying of the student pages only to your immediate family or class. Thank you! For any other purpose, copyright restrictions apply." (highlighting added)
I agree with sbkrjulie, I do not want to buy curriculum that I can not re-use with multiple children. Anyway, I am okay with copying this particular book! =)
This is why I quit buying from Queen Homeschool. If I can't make copies for my own children, I don't want to buy it. Nothing against the Queen family. I respect their right to make this decision. I just can't afford to buy five different copies of the same book so I go elsewhere. Which is a shame because I really like their stuff.
