WizardingWorld.com is hosting Harry Potter At Home, a hub of information and activities for parents, children, and carers to discover the magic of Harry Potter, by reading or listening on their own or together with loved ones, whilst staying at home. Explore the hub for a wealth of creative and craft activities, quizzes, puzzles and more. There will also be a weekly email newsletter bringing fresh ideas into inboxes each Friday.
Teachers can now post videos of themselves reading aloud from the Harry Potter books to children prevented from attending school thanks to a relaxing of the usual copyright permissions required.
Teachers anywhere in the world are permitted to post videos of themselves reading from Harry Potter books 1-7 onto schools’ secure networks or closed educational platforms from today until the end of the school year (or the end of July in southern hemisphere). A full set of Guidelines for Teachers are downloadable here.
In addition, partnerships with Audible and library book supplier OverDrive are bringing Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone free to homes during April. The audiobook can be streamed for free via the Audible Stories platform, whilst the eBook and audiobook can be borrowed in over 20 different languages worldwide via the OverDrive library services.
