I just read a very interesting post at The Horn Book by Rosanne Parry (author of Heart of a Shepherd, which I loved) on “reading up,” that is, letting our young children read precociously. This post is retrospective and focuses on her regrets in “allowing” her children to read beyond their years (and her regrets are really not what you’d expect). This post has convinced me to go ahead and give Lulu a book this week for her assigned reading that is really below her reading level. Go read it and tell me what you think.
