    Why would this be for ages 9 and up? I have a 7 year old I would like to include but am hesitant to purchase due to the 9+ age recommendation.

      The age-ranges are just our best estimates. There’s nothing really objectionable in this: profanity, sexual content, details about violence, etc. A 7-year-old might not understand all the content but would be fine to listen to it.
