Encouraging Children To Read: Harry Potter


There’s a running debate in my house between ME and MY KIDS!  Should they have to wait to see the Harry Potter movies until they have read the books?

I do as much as I can to encourage reading.  I try to have a lot of books around and to read with my kids after dinner. So if I had my druthers, my kids would probably wait to see the Harry Potter movies until they have read the books.

However, I don’t want my kids to miss out on watching a movie that all of their friends are seeing and to feel left out.  Plus the Harry Potter books are pretty daunting — I don’t know if I myself could finish all the Harry Potter books even if I tried, so I don’t want to be asking for too much.

In this vlog, I talk about how I am handling this.  What about your house?  Have you struggled with this issue?  Weigh in below.
