I am reading Matilda to my girls but I am thinking they are a little young for it. What I do like about it, it is about a little girl who is only four years old, incredibly bright and loves to read. In that respect I think this is great at encouraging young children that you can do anything at whatever age, there are no limits. However, I think some of the story is for the older crowd, 8-9 year olds who get that humour and know not to take it literally.
