We are big Harry Potter fans in this house. We’ve read the first book twice now, and just finished the second book over Christmas.
I am amazed by how well the kids follow the story as I read to them. Afterwards and even much later – during meals or while out and about, for example – they will bring up details that I can’t believe they picked up on.
This past Sunday, only an hour or two after I pulled out Ren’s second top tooth (!!), we attended the Harry Potter Exhibition that is currently in town here. It was amazing! We got to see all kinds of props from the movies: clothing, beds, wands, potions, models such as Dobby and Buckbeak, and even a replica of Hagrid’s hut!
The kids absolutely loved it, as did I. Even more than the exhibit, I love the enthusiasm Claire and Ren show for books and the magical worlds they create. Cheers to reading!
