1) It is a scary story to give to a child to read.

2) It is a scary story to be given to child to read.

Are they saying that one should not give the story to a child to read or simply that it would scare the child if the child reads it?

In other words do they mean:

a) This story would scare a child.

or:

b) This story is too scary for a child.

 

Gratefully,

Sorry, Navi, but I can't see the difference. I would go for something simpler like:

- It is a scary story for a child (to read).

or

- The story is too scary for a child (to read).
