Age Ranges on Books
Even my strict moral code doesn't think that age ranges printed on the covers of children's books is a good idea. Heck, I don't even like suggested age ranges. Parents should be literate enough and know their kids enough to make good choices, not have them be made by publishing companies who are (and should) be making money.
Talk about limiting ability and defining it by one's age rather than one's skill. This is what is wrong with all the many educational systems that think age has something to do with reading ability, when in fact the two are unrelated in any way. Some people are fools.Posted by John on May 30, 2008 03:37 PM | Posted to Young Adult/Children's Literature
