I have a son who is turning 5 this November. He's one of those kids who is far beyond his time (in that he understands concepts at 4 that most kids probably don't until 8 or so). I'm sure a lot of parents say that, but he really does know right from wrong, life and death concepts, good vs. evil. and other ideals I don't think I picked up until later on in life.
Anyway, would this be a good book to read to him for bedtime? Or is it too violent or mature? I see a lot of mention above in the keywords about "Christian this" and "Christian that". Is this book and Isle of Swords churchy books? I don't read him anything that has to do with religion unless mentioned off hand here and there. I want him to make the choice for himself when he gets older and not lay it on him and force him to be religious. Is this going to be an issue with this book?
