Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling illustrated by Mary GrandPre

I read this aloud to my boys.  They loved it and wanted me to read it to them all the time until we finished it!
My husband and I enjoyed this series before we had children!
Harry discovers on his eleventh birthday that he is actually a wizard.  Once at Hogwarts, he and his friends stumble upon a secret.  Using their gifts and wits, they overcome the evil trying to invade Hogwarts.
Exciting!  Very creative writing.
Warning/points to discuss: lying, witchcraft, murder (Harry's parents), talk of killing, use of the phrase "shut up"
-We own this book.
Guided Reading: V (5th/6th)
Grade Level Equivalent: 6th
