The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
The Harry Potter books are often a gateway for reluctant readers into the world of reading, much like Platform 9 ¾ is the gateway to the Hogwarts Express. And what better way to encourage your child’s new found love of reading than to whisk them away to experience all things Harry Potter!

Supporting the arts can be loads of fun when you see your favorite children’s book performed by your local theater group. During the summer, young actors can participate in local theater productions, and you can take your children to enjoy the show. Over the years I have seen local theater adaptations of Pinkalicous, Junie B. Jones and Charlotte’s Web, just to name a few.
