Booking Through Thursday — Censoring

btt button

In contrast to last week’s question–What do you think of censoring books BECAUSE of their intended age? Say, books too “old” for your kids to read?

As I said last week, I’m not into censoring books so much as making sure that people reading the book are the appropriate age to do so.   I believe this starts at home with the parents but that it also extends to grandparents, librarians, aunts, uncles, friends, etc.

It’s interesting to ponder books and think of them as being backwards compatible.  It’s always easier to revisit something or go backwards on the age appropriate level…

  1. I was lucky that my parents never censored anything I read when I was growing up. If anyone other than them had tried to stop me from reading a book I wanted to read I would have been very mad and would have read it anyway.
