Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone  - Mary GrandPré, J.K. Rowling

This book follows a boy and his friends as they navigate life as wizards. I would use this book in 6th grade. I would encourage the students to continue to read the rest of the series. The book would be great to have group discussions. The students could write an add for Harry Potter's Flying Nimbus.
