Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Thorndike Young Adult)

The author's first novel introduces Harry Potter, the son of a powerful wizard and witch who are killed by an even more powerful sorcerer. Sent to live with his Muggle (non-magical) aunt, uncle, and cousin, Harry is treated poorly without knowing why. On his tenth birthday, Harry learns that he is a wizard and is to go off to Hogwarts, a prestigious school for wizards and witches. Harry and his friends, Hermione and Ron, soon discover that something shady is going on, and they must save Hogwarts from the very sorcerer who killed Harry's parents.

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).
