JK Rowling Launches Free Harry Potter Hub Online For Kids Stuck At Home
Harry Potter author JK Rowling has launched a special, new Harry Potter hub for children interested in the books. The best part? It’s all free.
‘Harry Potter at Home’ stores a number of elements related to the mega-successful franchise, with the highlight being the audiobook version of the first installment of the series — Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. The book has been added to Audible’s library of free books as part of its partnership with the Amazon-owned platform. It is also available in several different languages, and does not require a subscription.
“Parents, teachers and carers working to keep children amused and interested while we’re on lockdown might need a bit of magic,” BBC reported Rowling say during the launch.
“For over twenty years now, Hogwarts has been an escape for all — for readers and fans, young and old,” the website organizers added in a post introducing the platform.
“During the strange times we now find ourselves in, we want to welcome you back to Hogwarts, where you will find a friendly retreat for you, your family and those you are caring for.”
Apart from the audiobooks, children can also indulge themselves in the various articles, puzzles and videos, made available by publishers Bloomsbury and Scholastic.
