I plan to get my child (7-8 YO) introduced to Harry Potter books (specifically, the first one - "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone").
It is definitely within the language level that is comfortable for the child, and likely he will be able to read large parts of it himself, although I may read parts aloud as well.
However, I think that the books is intended for a slightly older age (protagonist is 11YO) and is in an environment that is somewhat alien (I'm talking about boarding school, not magic :)
What are the main things that I should be aware of/prepared when the child reads the book or has it read to him?
What topics/points/themes would it be helpful to discuss, either in advance of reading the book, or as we read?
