    The real world isn’t looking so great right now, so here’s another option: escape into the Harry Potter universe for a bit with Harry Potter at Home, a digital hub for kids.

    Hosted at WizardingWorld.com, Harry Potter at Home has craft videos, articles, games, and more ways to engage Harry Potter fans as we pass our time in quarantine. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is also available for free all month: An audiobook is available on Audible Stories, and OverDrive library services offer both the eBook and audiobook.

    “Parents, teachers and carers working to keep children amused and interested while we’re on lockdown might need a bit of magic,” Rowling wrote on Twitter, a bit of an understatement if I’ve ever heard one. While we wait for the magic to kick in, gather round and let’s learn how to draw a Niffler.
