I so know the feeling of not knowing what's normal. Someone asked me about a birthday present for a 6 year old today, and I instantly said, "Well, they've probably read it ages ago, but how about Judy Moody? Have they read Harry Potter yet? Or well, Lord of the Rings is probably too 'boyish.'" The woman looked at me like I had grown 427 heads.
I guess even six year olds who are not reading yet (or not letting on that they are reading) aren't able to even listen to these books straight through? Judy Moody is only like 100 pages. We can read that before bedtime.
I wasn't trying to be nasty; I truly wasn't aware.
Whoa. I'm glad I live at my house.
