Immerse yourself in the Harry Potter world and the magic of Hogwarts from home
Posted on 09/04/2020
With people in quarantine everywhere around the world because of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is hard to keep finding activities and to bring back some magic into our world, for children and adults alike... But do not despair, J.K. Rowling, who created the much beloved Harry Potter series, is coming with some fantastic solutions for you!
Let's head to Hogwarts!
Harry Potter At Home, which is a project set up by Wizarding World (the official hub of Harry Potter fans) and Bloomsbury, Scholastic, Pottermore Publishing, Audible, and OverDrive, will give teachers an open license to read all of the seven books virtually to their students, as well as to access special content online that relates to the series.
And it won't be purely limited to teachers... Anyone with an Audible account will be able to download the "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" audiobook for free in six different languages, which include English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Japanese!
You will also be able to access Potter-themed craft videos (teach your friends how to draw a Niffler, for instance), take quizzes (discover your wizarding world name!), solve puzzles (try the Harry Potter word search!), read fun articles, and much more.
In a Twitter post on the 1st of April, J.K. Rowling announced: "Parents, teachers and carers working to keep children amused and interested while we're on lockdown might need a bit of magic, so I'm delighted to launch Harry Potter At Home".
