As the world moves to online learning and enrichment, teachers and families need resources more than ever, and the Wizarding World is here to help!
Last month, J.K. Rowling announced that she was lifting online licensing requirements for the Harry Potter books so teachers and families could read them over the Internet, even recording sessions, without facing penalties. Now, Wizarding World is expanding its free options, particularly with young people in mind.
The Harry Potter At Home hub will feature free ways to read and fresh entertainment for readers, including fun articles, activities, quizzes and more, with an emphasis on young readers and those who’d like to revisit the series from the start.
For the reading part of the journey, there are two new options:
- The first book in the series is currently free via Audible in six different languages– English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, and Japanese. American readers, take note that this is the British version of the book, but it’s still easy to enjoy!
- Overdrive users will be gifted the first book in over 20 languages via the Libby app or Sora app (the latter of which is built for schools.)
Wizarding World has some fun articles and videos up now and the hub and promises weekly updates for the foreseeable future. You can register now to receive a newsletter with updates as they come out.
