Harry Potter and the Children who Read

I love the Harry Potter books, however I think the best thing about them is not the great stories and the characters that populate them, but the fact that they are encouraging millions of kids all over the world to read.

There are kids lining up outside stores, kids biting their nails waiting for the book to arrive in the mail, kids getting their costumes ready for Saturday; in short, kids are going crazy to get and read a book!

I hope this reading craze continues after the last book in the series has been read and we all know what has happened, because reading is one of the most basic and important skills a child can learn.
