He did it!
Jared has a bit of unfair advantage - he's seen all the movies and knows what's happening. So that's made it easier for him to start reading in this magical world. I remember starting to read the first book with Justin and it was a bit hard to get into at first - since it was all so new to each of us.
Its been great Harry Potter with Jared - its been a family affair. He's read with everyone in our family (except for Justin, of course).
When he started out his goal was to read the first 2 books during 2nd grade and I thought that was a good goal. It was kind of slow start and in the beginning he would just read a page or 2. Many times I would read a page and he would read a page and that's all we would do.
But the last couple of weeks he's really been into it and we would read several pages or even the whole chapter. I started telling I bet he finished the first book by Halloween - and then he finished it last night! That's over 300 pages for a 2nd grader :)
Now on to the next book - at least we don't have to wait for them this time around.
