I would not allow anyone to read an abridged version or simplified version of a book, just to get them acclimated. It seems to me to be similar to Cliffs notes. Which are ridiculous. I won't say I never used them I did in college, but in junction with whatever I was reading. I always read my books then when I did not understand I would go to the helpers guide. or my professor.
