    2. I particularly enjoyed Denise Dwyer D Errico s piece, Harry Potter and the Child with Autism it s refreshing to see new takes on working with and through the autism spectrum The entire collection of essays was a treat, however, illuminating various issues around the adoption of the Harry Potter series as a tool for learning and illumination at all stages of child development An excellent read for both teachers and parents


    3. What a fantastic read From teaching ideas, to areas around the world that reading Harry Potter made reading and literature classes productive Excellent resource for teachers and parents alike.
