We at Expat Choice know that everyone is trying to keep safe, and staying at home is all the go at the moment and so, with J.K. Rowling and friends at Audible, Bloomsbury, OverDrive, Pottermore Publishing and Scholastic, we are delighted to share with our readers Harry Potter At Home to help children, parents, carers and teachers add a touch of Harry Potter magic to our new daily lives.
Here’s everything you need to know about Harry Potter At Home: some new ways to bring the magic closer to you, all specially created by different members of our wide Wizarding World family.
For over twenty years now, Hogwarts has been an escape for all – for readers and fans, young and old. During the strange times we now find ourselves in, we want to welcome you back to Hogwarts, where you will find a friendly retreat for you, your family and those you are caring for.
Over 500 million Harry Potter books have been sold across the globe, so it’s comforting to know many homes already have a door to the wizarding world waiting to be opened once again. And for those who’ve never visited the wizarding world before, welcome!
The Harry Potter At Home project is very much a team effort, combining the resources of Harry Potter UK and US publishers Bloomsbury and Scholastic, Pottermore Publishing, leading spoken-word producer and provider Audible, library supplier OverDrive, and of course, WizardingWorld.com.
So, what exactly is Harry Potter At Home and how can you get involved? We’re pleased to say – in all sorts of ways!
Hogwarts’ doors are open for teachers everywhere
J.K Rowling and her team have already announced a special, open licence for teachers to read the seven Harry Potter books aloud to their pupils in virtual read-a-long sessions on video. This means if you’re a teacher you’ll be able to record yourself reading Harry’s Hogwarts adventures and share these with your pupils online. Learn how to get involved here.
