I don't have any kids, but I would read the story as is and explain what the different words/meaning are and why we don't use them anymore. Not only would they learn about the past, they won't get confused/mocked in school when they try to talk about the edited version of the story.

What's the new word that currently used to insult dark skinned people trying to invade the fair skinned North?

Also, if she gets teased because she doesn't mention "the darkies" from the Narnia books, I think I'm probably ok with that.
