We are now proud owners of this beautiful illustrated version. I intend to collect the rest of the illustrated versions before my boys are old enough to read them. The effects of Potter mania on our family are such that my four year olds often mention Potter books in their pretend play. They are often delivering the Harry Potter book packages to somebody somewhere out there, in their toy mail trucks 😄
This book series is so extraordinary that even months after reading these books, I am able to have conversations with my ten year old about the characters we met via these books. Random, soul-touching conversations in which my daughter is excited to participate and fully engaged in them, without much effort from my side.
Reminiscing a conversation that I had with my daughter in the car a few days ago, where we discussed Severus Snape, a complex and unforgettable character from the Harry Potter book series. We also discussed Neville Longbottom, another unforgettable character from the same book series ❤️
