Can one bring young kids to the Megillah reading? Does each person have to have a kosher Megillah during the reading?
One should educate young children to come and listen to the Megillah reading as long as they don't bother. It is most advisable to own a Kosher Megillah, but if not one may follow word by word in an unkosher Megillah. Rabbi Ya'akov Ariel
