This is a wonderful book for children and adults alike. Small children aren't going to understand the so-called Atheist viewpoints-the will just enjoy the story. And older children will enjoy the story as well. However, I'm not sure any child will be sitting there trying to nitpick every "non-Christian" sentence and storyline in the series. We'll leave that one to the ignorant parents. ;)
All sarcasm aside, this is a wonderful series and I encourage everyone to read it for themselves and decide whether or not they enjoy it... rather than let someone else's review scare them off.

DO NOT BE FOOLED! Our family listened to the audio of The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife - enjoying the action, while still having an uncomfortable feeling in the gut. When we got to the third book in the trilogy, The Amber Spyglass - we stopped listening. For the Christian - this is NOTHING SHORT OF BLASPHEMY. The entire series is about "killing God" in the author's own words. The third book in the worst - but all are bad....trying to set the trap to ensnare kids into the fantasy world of believing all this stuff. No, the demons, witches, spectors and talking animals didn't freak us out. It was the out-and-out lies of an athiest author that turned us off. So, IF YOU ARE CHRISTIAN....DON'T BOTHER WITH THIS SERIES.
