A friend of mine previews everything her nearly 8 yr old, gifted daughter reads. I don't preview or restrict my 6 1/2 yr old daughter's reading at all... my daughter has read stuff her daughter hasn't yet. Interestingly, DD is less sensitive to "scary" stuff in books than she is in movies. Nearly every movie is "too scary" during any dramatic moments, but I think there's only been one bit in "Bunnicula" (or one from that series) that she found "scary" despite many of the books she reads being fairly dramatic - or at least the same as movies. I swear the music they play in the movies makes a huge difference.
Anyway, it just got me wondering how many of you pre-read/restrict reading for precocious readers? I do try to steer her towards things that are age appropriate - I don't need her reading teen drama, yet, but if she was sold on reading one I think I'd probably just let her have-at.
What are your experiences with this?
