Dear all, This book series was not there as I was growing up, but my DD grew up reading this and I think it really shapes up a child's character with its morals and more. Best part of this is, your child will be enjoying and you can enjoy it too! Harry Potter is a one of a kind series that has been around for years and has made a very lasting impression on my family and me. It is very much worth a try for all ages. There are 7 books and 8 movies in the series, and it is truly an enjoyable read for all ages.
