So often we hear of adults reading young adult fiction. But what about the other way around? How often do we read a great book that we would love to share with our kids? Or perhaps your child wants to read a story that you have raved about. It is a wonderful thing to be able to share the insights of a great book across your family. But often times the books we read may have topics and language that we don't feel comfortable sharing with a younger child. Or, perhaps the book itself is written in a way that is too complex for their reading level at the time.
Welcome teen and child adaptations! Writers (and publishers) are realizing this is a growing market and creating versions of popular stories that are written for a younger audience. I love it! Any chance you have to share a story with your kids is just another way to reinforce the value of reading in your family, and kids love discussing books with their parents.
Jump on this trend! I have provided a list of some great books that have been adapted so that you can all enjoy the power of a great story at a level that is appropriate for every member of the family!
