My 9 yr old daughter thoroughly enjoyed reading The Tales of Beedle the Bard;. She read it in one sitting. Her favorite story was the Tale of the Three Brothers. Knowing I'm a big fan of the Harry Potter series, she said I should read it too. I enjoyed it as well. The book "refreshed" my memory of some of the characters that were only fleetingly mentioned in the Harry Potter books and not at all in any of the film versions.
