If there's one thing I can be sure of, it's that the Harry Potter series will be required reading for my future children. As a fan of the series myself, I've learned countless lessons from Harry and his friends, and I can only hope that one day I'll be able to pass down the beloved books and it's lessons to my own children. And if you're a Potter fan, chances are you feel the same way. But, like any wildly adventurous and imaginative series, there are things to tell your child about Harry Potter before they start reading it.
There's some controversy over when the best age to start your children reading Harry Potteris, but like all things, it all depends on you, your child, and how comfortable you feel while reading it together. Because in my opinion, the best way to start your children on Harry Potter is by making it a family affair. This way, you'll remember exactly what the content of the books is, and be able to guide your child through the series. Although the books do cover dark content, if you give your child a primer for the books and tell them these things beforehand, they'll be ready to devour them, one book at a time.
