Reading With Kids - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
My nine year old son and I have been working our way through the Harry Potter series. It's been a long time since I've read these books on my own, and I have truly loved re-discovering them with my son. There are days when we only read one chapter, and days like last Monday (Memorial Day here in the U.S.) where we read for three hours.
So, I thought as a new feature on my blog, I would (try to remember to) post when we finished a book, and my son, Kevin, and I would do a little interview type review for each one. I thought it would be fun to look at books through the eyes of a nine year old. WARNING: May contain spoilers.
If you were telling a friend about Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, what would you tell them it's about?
A person got out of Azkaban because he turned into a dog.
What was your favorite part?
When he was saved from the people who were going to give him the kiss thingy.
Who is your favorite character?
The guys that were trying to take him away.
If you could change something about the book, what would you change?
Black running away. I would have him not run and join Harry and help him.
Were there any scary parts?
Who would you recommend this book to?
My friends and family.
Do you ever read with your kids? If so, what have been some of your favorites to read together?
