I’m not going to review Harry Potter, the stories are so well known and loved, but I’ve been reading the novels for the first time. When the first book came out in 1997, my kids no longer needed me to read to them. One of my daughters immediately fell in love with the stories, but I was too busy and not interested enough to dive into the books at that time. I’ve never even seen a Harry Potter movie. But now I have a second chance. My 7 yo grandson, Cruise, is into these stories. I’m visiting him in Mexico and now have the chance to read to him at night. I quickly consumed the first book, The Sorcerer’s Stone, just to catch up to where his parents and Cruise had gotten, so now were part way through The Chamber of Secrets. I’m loving this. There are great characters with great adventures – very clear good guys and evil ones. Enough said. If you’ve already had the pleasure of these stories, you know what I mean. If you haven’t read these J.K. Rowling stories, then you have no idea what you’re missing.
