Your kids have read the books and watched the DVDs countless times…but have they seen Harry Potter get his letter to Hogwarts on the BIG screen?
I doubt today’s kids have had a chance to see young Harry in the theater. After all, the first Harry Potter book was written in 1997 and turned into a movie in 2001! (Heck, as long as I’m doing the math, it’s been 17 years for Sorcerer’s Stone and 7 for Deathly Hallows 2.)
