You have to read all the HP books, or see all the films to understand how it all ties in together. I haven't read JK's adult mystery one though.

I think it helps children to use their imaginations when you read to them.

Of course it does ,
Plus many other things like sharing precious time together and it was delightful to hear the children's giggles, gasps and seeing their little faces..

Spot on, T. I saw a lovely little baby this morning. You could tell how proud his mum was. She smiled, so I went over and had a bit of a chat. He was wearing a sleepsuit almost identical to one which one my boy's had. Ten weeks old, and gorgeous.

Of course they are, but I think it looks lovely when you see mums wheeling twins out.
