So my son’s second grade teacher encouraged us to have him read beyond his level…to challenge him. So from Miss Daisy Is Crazy! we are jumping right into the Harry Potter series. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone  by J.K. Rowling will be his first book without pictures. Now my son absolutely loves to read…he has even gotten in trouble at school lately for reading when he is supposed to be doing other things…but I’m curious to see if this will hold his attention. His eyes got very wide when he saw how many pages were in the book. He seemed more excited about the fact that the binding was so big that it fit the whole title. Even though this series hasn’t interested me in the past, I am very tempted to read it along with him. That way we can talk about the chapters and I can see if he is truly absorbing the information. Who knows, I might get sucked in like the rest of the Harry Potter lovers!!

Has your child read Harry Potter yet? If so, how old was he/she when they read it? Did it hold their attention? Is second grade too young to start this series? I guess I’ll find out soon 😉
