Harry Potter Series Gets Kids Back Into Books

DETROIT (WWJ) – The release of the final Harry Potter movie might serve as a good time to start getting kids back to reading the original books.

The series and the movies it created have brought millions of children into reading, even if they struggle to carry around those books, which are several thousands of pages long.

The movies encouraged children who otherwise would not have tried the book to give it a chance.

But since the Harry Potter series has come to a close, parents are now left asking what will be the next blockbuster book for this age group.
