It sounds like you've successfully found a bunch of appropriate children's books which is great. Happy reading!!
I don't see what's so hard to understand, and I'm sorry to single you out ollyoxenfree but you were the last respondent about this issue. Adult chapter books or books without pictures aren't allowed in their room unsupervised. We don't keep them there, because my youngest destroys books. It doesn't mean OH NOES they aren't allowed any books ever, just not in their room. They are both freely allowed to read books anywhere in the house, but we don't keep the chapter books in their room (they have two designated shelves in the family room). We don't allow them to keep trains in their room either, doesn't mean they aren't allowed to play with trains in any other part of the house. Just not in their room.
and yes, I was glad to be able to find some good books for him at the library too!MJB
- I'm glad to have your understanding, I was a little frustrated as well. Everyone else was comparing their own experiences as a 11 or 12 year old (one posted did mention their seven year old) which I feel is ages different than a four year old reading, you know?
