Ironically my kids back to school reading assigment this year was to read the first 3 Harry Pottter Books. They all loved them but we didn’t get a chance to see the movies. Recently I was sent the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Magical Movie and we all truly loved it. Having read the book myself, the story line is near identical with some changes built in with character development.
