Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

This story is filled with dark comedy and crafted with a quality of writing that has garnered J.K. Rowling top awards in her country and ours. Harry Potter spent ten long years living with his aunt and uncle and stupid cousin, Dudley. Fortunately, Harry has a destiny that he was born to fulfill. One that will rocket him out of his dull life and into a unique experience at the Hogworts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

This book gets a place of honor (despite the fact that it doesn’t need a recommendation), because it has transcended age boundaries more than any other book I've read. My parents started reading it aloud to my brother and I when we were in elementary school, all clustered together on a couch or spread out across the living room. They did voices, they did gestures, they passed the book back and forth so the other could drink some coffee.

From A Bookseller Through the Ages

I don't have a particularly strong memory, but that is one that has stuck with me to this day. My family continued to read or listen to the series together until the end. So if you’re looking for a story that functions perfectly as a read aloud, this may be your pick—both the books and the audiobooks are lovely (check out Libro.fm for the audio).
