Anny Nym posted a topic in Quiverfull of WordsI was quite taken about the funny and exciting-to-read Harry Potter discussion, that were sparked on the other threads now. So letÂ´s have a thread about it! Talk about why you love it or why you hate it. WhatÂ´s the best part, whatÂ´s the worst part and what a child (or a teen, or a adult!) could gain from it. And what else books are dear to you? What are you reading to your children and at what age? What do you let them read? In the Nym household, we keep to the classics, mostly. My oldest is going to be a First Grader in September. ThatÂ´s our ChildrenÂ´s Book Style: GrimmÂ´s fairy tales and similar fairy tales, Austrian Folk Tales and similar, Wilhelm BuschÂ´s rhyming picture stories, Mira Lobe ("The little I-am-I"), Else Ury (Short Stories and NesthÃ¤kchen), Paul Biegel ("Tulle Dwarfs"),... you get the picture :). Waldorf books like a Jahreszeitenbuch/the Year-around-book are also really great! Would you recommend Harry Potter for a under-10yrs-old? Valerie loves everything with witches, fairies, ghosts and all the like. We already started "That Lovely Mister Devil" from Christine NÃ¶stlinger And both my girls adore Bibi Blockberg! Mr Nym says, although he isnÂ´t a fan of Harry Potter character, he likes that it seems to create a quite positive image about Boarding Schools, so he is okay with us both reading the first book together with her, if she would like it.
