It’s amazing to me that the most frequently challenged book(s) of the last decade was the Harry Potter series. The complaints ranged from it being anti-family and violent to accusations of occultism and Satanism. I’m not usually a series person, but this is one of the few that I read to the end. What was great about this series is that I started by reading this to my kids and by the end of the series, they were reading it to me! Many educators have noted that this page-turning series increased literacy among children and adults, and some studies showed that it had a positive effect on kids’ moral values–that Harry Potter taught them about valuing their friendships and doing the right thing.
