Not the only possible way: if a book is shared in the neighborhood
view, each child can download it by joining the Read activity. In your
proposal, I presume each child needs to accept the transfer
notification, so there has to be an action taken by each intended
recipient in any case. The difference being that book won't be opened
at the time of transfer in your scenario (not sure that is a feature).
But presumably teachers don't like this method?

Is that so unreasonable? Adding all of the children in a class -- once
-- at the beginning of the term?
