Harry Potter

At Christmas, Coco received a copy of the new illustrated version of the first Harry Potter book from Aunt Lili and Uncle Russ.  If you have not seen this book, it is worth looking for.  It is beautiful.  Coco and I were hooked immediately.  As fun as the story is on its own, the beautiful illustrations only enhanced the experience for us.  Coco had this to say about book one…

 

WIZARDS AS TEACHERS WHATS BETTER THAN THAT

TEACHERS ON BROOMSTICKS WITH MAGIC ON THEIR LESSON PLANS

THE WORLD OF HOGWARTS

WHERE SOMETHING FUN IS ALWAYS BREWING…

 

I think I see a future in book jacket blurbs!  

Coco and I recently finished the second book The Chamber of Secrets.  We enjoyed it just as well as the first.  Below is Coco’s book review.  Alex and I had to look up two of the words in the dictionary.  One, to make sure she spelled it right (she did, of course, although I would not have) and the second because we weren’t entirely sure she had used it correctly (she had).  Here is a link to a short video clip that Alex filmed as we worked.  I haven’t shared a video in a while – I think you’ll notice how much faster and more deliberate she is with her letter-boarding.

JUST WHEN I THOUGHT I COULDNT ENJOY A BOOK MORE

    Wow! What progess you are making with your letter-boarding, Coco! Danielle and I are reading Harry Potter together, too, and I would say your review is spot on.
