Encouraging Children To Read: Harry Potter
- March 20, 2013

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.
