My eight year old daughter enjoys reading this book series. She was thrilled when I gave her this book to read on a long car trip. As she was reading she started asking me questions about boys liking boys. I asked why and she said in the book that is a discussion that is occurring between characters. I was very surprised. This is a children's book! I understand that this is something our kids growing up today will need to understand, however, this is something that as a parent, I will discuss and teach her more about! Not a book! And not at this age!. It's my job as a parent to inform my child of certain social issues and I really didn't appreciate this mature subject matter being pushed in this book. I took her book and read it myself to understand exactly the theme of the book. The subject matter continues throughout the book and ends with a bang. Not OK! And now my daughter and I have had conversations that I would've preferred to have when she was a year or two older and could understand a bit better. I hope this gives an insight into this book so you can decide as a parent if it's appropriate or not for your child.
