Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. In contrast to last week’s question–What do you think of censoring books BECAUSE of their intended age? Say, books too “old” for your kids to read?
Interesting question. I don't believe in holding children back. I think if you expect more of them, they will rise to the occasion. As for certain books, I think it all depends on the content of the book. I think if the book is previewed by the parent and found to be suitable for a specific child, then of course let the child read it. If a child is interested in something above his/her age level, that's a good thing (in most cases). Again, we're talking about books. If a child can handle it, by all means, read away.
