Back to Books

The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling is one of the most popular Kids Book Series of all time. The series follows the story of young British boy, Harry, who finds out he's actually a wizard and that there is a double world in England where wizards work, live, and go to school. Against his mean foster parent's wishes, he attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to learn how to control his magic. At Hogwarts Harry meets his two best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. These two friends will accompany Harry on his adventures in the next seven books.

In each book Harry has to take on his arch enemy, the powerful dark wizard Lord Voldemort. Typically harry first has to deal with his horrible foster parents and escape them in order to attend a new year at Hogwarts. Once at Hogwarts, Harry has his friends but also his enemies; teachers and students who are secretly allied with Voldemort. Generally Harry gets some help from the powerful wizard and headmaster of Hogwarts, Albus Dumbledore, but, in the end, Harry must face Voldemort on his own and figure out how to keep him at bay.

Overall Review

This series is very entertaining and most kids will have a tough time putting the books downs. The books do get progressively darker and more mature. Parents may want to supervise or read the stories, especially the last few, before letting young children read them. There is also a strong element of magic and evil.

Suggested Reading level: Ages 9-14
