  1. I am reading the Harry Potter series with my 7, 5 and (because he’s in the room) 15 month old. My daughter (the 7 year old) is absolutely obsessed! We have watched all the movies at least 2 times this year and she’s already begging to watch them all again (we just finished last week again).

    I will have to bookmark these and make some for her birthday in a couple weeks (when she officially becomes 7)
