I don't censor my kids books. Although I have been tempted.
One of my children, god help me, went through a Junie B phase. OMG. I had to bite my tongue.
: But at the time, that was about the level her decoding skills were at and she felt like a compentant 'chapter book' reader. I read to my children, even my 14 and 13 yr olds, everyday, so I knew she was getting to hear some good sentence structure, and could consider better plots, and more involved ideas.
I read lots of candy myself. I don't consider Jodi Picoult work great lit, but I can identify with her young mother plots. I also laughed my ass of a couple of years ago when I read The Devil Wears Prada during a summer beach vacation. I also read MDC daily.
I wouldn't expect from my children what I do not expect from myself.
ETA-- I also read whatever when they were little. I have preferences, but if we were at the library or bookstore, I always read to them whatever they handed me. My oldest was a Spot the Dog *freak*. He got a 5 on his AP Lit exam, so it all worked out. lol
