The final Harry Potter book is now up for sale and will be out in late July. David and I bought the first Harry Potter on my first outing after the birth of our son. We've been reading them aloud to each other before bed. When Son turned six, he read the first book in the series. He read the second when he turned seven. Needless to say, Son can't wait until his eighth birthday, just so he can read the third book.
How have the rest of you dealt with your youngsters reading the later books in the series? Son has definitely grown up a lot in the last two years and could probably deal with many of the more frightening scenes--but he is fundamentally a very sensitive child with an extremely active imagination that sometimes takes him further than he wants to be.
Just in time for the release of HP7, Alison Hansel (of Blue Blog fame) is coming out with Charmed Knits: Projects for Fans of Harry Potter! I can't wait to see this book!
