Full disclosure: I am a big Harry Potter nerd. I’m so thankful that some of my students badgered me into reading the series a few years ago. I listened to all of the books in English, then listened to the first 4 in French, and am now reading the fifth one in French. I am not usually interested in the fantasy genre, but I love these books. I’ve started occasionally reading the French version to my students at the end of class, and it’s been a lot of fun. Almost all of the kids have read the books and/or seen the movies, and they love hearing the story in another language.
