I love Harry Potter, and I think that I have learned a lot from reading the series. It seems to me that every time you read through it again, you find more and more facts, feelings, and life skills.
4 life skills I found when reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone:
- Love and Caring. How many times Ron, Hermione, Dumbledore, and so many others in the world of Harry Potter cared, and loved? Dumbledore cared so much to send Hagrid to go get Harry when his parents died. I don’t really think the Dursleys would be included in this category though! 🙂
- Perseverance. Harry had to persevere to get his letter from Hogwarts, and also to find his classrooms at Hogwarts!
- Courage. Harry had to use courage to ask Mrs. Weasley how to get onto Platform 9 3/4, and he also had to use it when he was fighting Quirrell.
- Friendship. The friendship between Harry and Ron is strong starting in Chapter 6, but later on, because of the troll incident, Hermione becomes friends with Harry and Ron and they form a trio.
