ABSTRACT
This article addresses the positive influence of the "Harry Potter" book series on the reading habits of U.S. youth. He mentions critics who overlook this significance to focus on their belief that children should read "better" books. He notes that author J. K. Rowling's books are not as moving or beautiful as some young adult stories, but he praises their approachability and expresses gratitude that they have helped his child, who has Down's syndrome, to understand theme, feelings, and narrative.
