I'm a fairly "conservative" parent (we don't watch shows, etc, that have disrespectful children or language) and I was okay with this book- mainly because we were reading it together, and so if the character's statement or attitude became questionable, we would pause and discuss it or go over, "Hmm, what would be a better way to say that?" or, "Do you think that was a wise choice?" But even with that said, nothing that made me think of putting the book down.
There are some pages without any pictures, but no more than one spread in a row is without a picture, which helps keep his interest. Additionally, the pictures are well-placed so that if anything happens that kids might find scary (like Elmer meeting hungry tigers in My Father's Dragon) there is a picture that shows that everything is okay on that same page. My son hates conflict in books, or for things to be too scary, so I feel like these books strike a great balance. Nobody (Elmer, the Dragon, any animals they meet) gets injured or eaten, they just get bested with clever solutions.
In these books, Elmer is kind, helpful, and resourceful. I am happy to read these books over and over to my son because the story is good and Elmer is a good role model. I would recommend this series highly as a first chapter book series to read aloud to any child.

If talks about a boy similar to the age going on an expedition and his experiences. It shares a lot of emotions.
Little kids can relate to it.
I love the way the things the Father has in his pocket work out perfectly for the story!
