Book Review

This book is historical (steeped in legends and historic tales) as well as fun and expands on the wonder that children over the world have experienced through the words of J.K. Rowling in the Harry Potter Series.  The Harry Potter connection is what drew me to purchase this book and when I read it from cover to cover I was spellbound by its contents.  Within its pages there are crafts and science experiments (magic potions) and everything else you need to know to make you as much a wizard as is possible.  You can even learn how to plan a Wizard's party.  These experiences will encourage children to develop and expand their imaginations while learning, about measuring, for example.

Some projects require adult assistance and some just supervision, depending on the age of your child.  There are no official guidelines such as age recommendations or skill level in the book so it is up to your discretion.  You know your child and his/her capabilities best.   

There is a templates section at the back of the book for those that didn't accompany each project.  Due to the limited space in the book however, most of the templates do need enlarging which is a slight inconvenience.  This book is definitely worth having because the projects and the stories in the book are fascinating and will keep children interested for a long time.
