So, here's a closer look at those bookcases I posted yesterday. All nicely arrange by reading level.
Picture books on the bottom:
"Why?" I asked her.
"Because there's a book on the top shelf I want to read."
"What book is it?"
"I don't know, but it's a big blue book and it looks good and I want to read it."
Do you see the big blue book? Know what it is? Let's take a closer look:
"Boo, you can't read Harry Potter 5."
Anyway, I told her we could read the first Harry Potter together after we finish what we're reading. She didn't love that answer, but whatever.
How old would you want a child to be before reading Harry Potter?? I figure I don't mind her reading the first one or two with me at this age (she's going into first grade), but I don't think I want her to read 3 for another couple of years! Let alone 4-7!!
(And, no, she's never seen the movies. Never expressed an interest. Should I have her watch the movie first or read it first?)
