What is the age requirements for Harry Potter books

While there is no right or wrong age to start reading the Harry Potter books, there are some guidelines for parents. Kids from ages 7 to 9 are okay to start reading the first few books.

Harry Potter is 11 years old in the first book and 17 years old in the last book. It may be a good idea to align the books to your child?s age. The later books in the series get darker and longer.

You can purchase these as the Harry Potter series box set which is available as a paperback as well as Kindle. Kindle is comparatively cheaper but kids at this age may like to feel and touch.

My kids borrowed Harry Potter books from the local public library. Most public libraries have all Harry Potter books in paperback as well as digital format. These libraries provide free digital access to ebooks, music, magazine, and movies through their library apps such as Libby and Overdrive. Check out my article ?
