It is no secret in my house that I have one avid reader and another child who likes to read just enough, so you can imagine my delight when my five year old decided to start reading “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”.
It is a huge book for a kid, complete with 309 pages, but if you read seven pages a night you will slowly muddle through it all.
This book is perfect for any child that is already breezing through picture books. Sure, I have to help her with words like “cobbled” and “apothecary”, but it is also fun to sit and read with her for a half-hour before bed. The book is so engaging that you will not mind.
The Harry Potter series is the perfect book to enchant any child. The first book is the best one; it is a great introduction to Hogwarts and all the other magic Rowling has concocted. The innocence of the main characters is heartwarming (it’s Harry Potter, I am just going to assume that you know the main characters).
From wand waving to hideous trolls and broomstick riding, there is never a dull moment in the first installment of the series. There are so many wonderful chapters in this book. The best part, even though they are magical, the main characters are still completely relatable and face real child problems from a teacher who does not like their group to peers that are bullies.
This collection is so fun. Last summer was our Harry Potter summer, where my older daughter would read a book and we would watch the movie. I am so excited to repeat this with my younger daughter.
