Say the words, "Harry Potter", and most, if not all,
will know exactly what I am talking about.
J.K. Rowlings created this fantasy series of books beginning in 1997. Many of us have grown-up with the cast.
I was not one of them.
I never was a huge follower of Harry Potter. On occasion, I watched part of the movie, or listened to my son read a few pages of the book, but I never invested major time into the series. There was no particular reason for my decision. It just happened this way. Believe me when I say that not having me on-board has done no harm to the J.K. Rowling empire. The Harry Potter series has sold over 400 million book copies.
Kaden loves reading. I have shared his passion of reading several times on this blog. He was ecstatic when he received the Paperback Box Set (books 1-7) in the mail. He cracked open the first book and finished it in no time. I even caught him reading at his grandfather's baseball game (and goofing off a bit too). Check him out:
Gotta love kids, right?!
I am amazed at all the places you can go with reading. It is the one activity that takes you to a different place each time you visit. The possibilities are endless. Listen as Whoopi Goldberg shares her love for a reading (share the Whoopi Goldberg PSA on your site with this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXKHqTG8tZE):
