The Magic Continues!

There really must be magic in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books. My youngest son just started the series in March and cannot put them down. He has been reading like crazy and is already on the sixth book.

Being my third child, he has seen most of the movies before reading the books. He really did not want to read the books as he had seen most of the movies. In the mind of an eight-year-old boy, why would you read it, if you have seen it??

I did not want him to miss out on this terrific series so we started the first book together. For a few nights, I read aloud to him and then he was hooked! I found him flashlight in hand reading the books on his own and he has not stopped.

He loves telling me how the books and the movies are different. After he finishes a book, we have been watching the movies together. It is fun to hear him discuss how the movie is different from the book. This is a perfect series for children to enjoy over the summer.
