My MIL hates Harry Potter. She said it's evil and teaches kids how to use magic.... Ok... She's a teacher(2nd grade), and her fav books to read to her kids are the Junie B. Jones books. I think THOSE would have a worse impact on such small kids... (Although I LOVE them myself) And in one book Junie B. comes home and hears her infant brother crying. So she goes to see him and she picks him up, hugs him, then puts him in the hall closet and shuts him in. I told her I think that teaches kids they can be mean to younger siblings (just to be a butt. lol). So WHO dislikes Harry Potter for reasons other than genre? And why???
I love HP. Believing in magic makes life so much more fun.
Junie B., on the other hand, drives me nuts. They are awful for teaching kids to read because her sentence structure is bad, bad, bad. Good books teach kids the correct way to read and write by example. Kids already know how to talk wrong, which is why they need the books to guide them. I am an elementary school teacher, mostly 3rd grade. I do not encourage Junie B.
