    i loved Winn Dixie =D As for the 8 yr olds I think maybe they're growing up too fast but if the parents are fine with it then let em read! Actually, the fact that they can comprehend over 300 pages is really good and the fact that they're reading at all is wonderful! So, if you see a bunch of 8 year old girls playing Street Fighter or something THEN you can be a little concerned >.>'

    I think it's a bit mature for an eight year old. She is not quite at the age where she can understand romance like in twilight. Maybe in a few years...Twilight is just such a physically romantic book, not appropriate for an eight year old in my opinion.

    Ask your mom/dad, I think it would be fine becouse they don't really say sex in the book much.If your mom/dad says that you can't read it to her just skip that part. I tried to get my 8 year old sister to read twilight, then she screamed at me.

    I don't think she would understand some of the emotions... like the obsessive love of imprinting and Edward's and Bella's even stronger love. Also, in New Moon, your sister might not understand why Bella would be the way she was.

    And the kissing and stuff as well. It's a romance novel, after all, and not many eight year olds would be able to get into them.

    I don't think I'd have enjoyed the book much if I was eight.

    no, i don't think so. she is too young to really understand love.

    I think it will be alright to read it too her. Maybe you could alter that part in book three a little bit. Or maybe because she's only eight she won't understand. You could ask your parent too if it's all right. Let them read that little part first.

    I think you should give it to her to read for herself.

    I've seen younger girls reading Twilight around her age, so I don't see why it would be a problem.
