|This week saw the launch of Harry Potter at Home – Readings*, a really exciting initiative that will see some of the best-loved faces in entertainment, music and sport recording videos of themselves reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. To kickstart the campaign none other than Daniel Radcliffe read the first chapter, ‘The Boy Who Lived’ – you can watch it here or listen to it as audio here.
All seventeen chapters of the book will be released between now and the middle of the summer. Videos will be posted weekly on harrypotterathome.com, with an audio-only version available for free on Spotify. Keep your eyes peeled for Chapter 2: ‘The Vanishing Glass’ which will be coming very soon!
Once you’ve listened to the chapter don’t forget to visit the Harry Potter Books website where you will find lots of activity sheets to download, craft ideas, or why not test your Harry Potter knowledge with our special Philosopher’s Stone quiz?
