Read the Hunger Games to an 8 and 9 yr old? 

They have seen the movie.

While the kids read a lot on their own we also have always read to them,  We recently finished The Hobbit and we are reading Treasure Island right now. 

I agree they could read by themselves but I like sharing it with them.  We all cried when Thorin Died.

I think if they've seen the movie then yes I would read the books to them.

 No.  My girls are 16 and 18 and I'm still not ready for them to even read it.

Hmmm...I don't know.  I can see an argument for it being based per child.  I might let my daughter read it at that age because I think the message of the books is important.

Why?
