Reading books at your level

Reading a book which was said to be for your age group was how I .... didn't learn to read.
I was put off. There were so many books I wanted to look at be it just the cover, the words or even the picture or the fact I wanted to talk to my parents about the content. But I was not aloud to take the book out of the library if I got five mistakes while reading aloud to my teacher on the first page.

Right at this moment my daughter is 'reading' Jon Kabat Zinn's "Coming to our Senses". I'm not going to tell her she can't.
I feel the more she wants to look at books and the more books we have in our house that are interesting then her...and my son's interest in reading will keep going.
