I’m currently galivanting around the New Forest so only a short review from me today, but for more book reviews and suggestions see The Book Club.
The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling is a great addition to the Harry Potter universe. However, instead of gushing over the world of Potter, I wanted to comment on how the book is the type of children’s stories that are missing today.
Remember when you were a child and there were stories like the Little Red Hen and her loaf of bread? These stories are like that for me. The magical element makes them immensely enjoyable both for children and adults who love the HP universe. Most importantly they offer lessons – in ‘The Warlock’s Hairy Heart’ the reader is confronted with what happens if you attempt to become heartless, and teaches about helping others in ‘The Wizard and the Hopping Pot’.
The Harry Potter series became a favourite with both children and adults, Rowling has again created a novel from that universe which teaches children many vital lessons with a magical backdrop for added entertainment. A great way to get young children involved with the Harry Potter world.
