My 5 year old DD currently loves reading Curious George and always thinks about George when she gets into bed.
I think the stories about a curious monkey loving to discover life and having good behavior is pretty meaningful, so I let her pick up what she likes. So at our home now, there are only Curious George books, nothing else because DD only chooses them.
I have two different thinking.
1/ Since she loves the character, she loves to read more, and this is good (as long as the character is good).
2/ She loves to read nothing else at the moment. If I introduce other kinds of books, she will learn more about other things.
Should I continue to let her read only a kind of books she likes until she changes her mind (this may take long time), OR should I add more books for her?
The latter sounds better, but there is a trade off. If I take Curious George and other books together, she will be into only George, so if i want her to read other books, I shouldn't borrow George.
