Free printable Harry Potter coloring pages: National Literacy Month book crafts - Grand Rapids Holidays | Examiner.com

 September is National Literacy Month. The Harry Potter books are the most popular series in children's literature. The novels make good reader's workshop selections and read-alouds for younger or reluctant readers. The books expose kids to many genres and literary elements: medieval folk lore, mythology, German fairy tales, Greek oral tradition, epic poetry, Norse legends, African fables and more. You'll find Harry Potter connections to Virgil, Homer, Parzifal, Siegfried, Shakespeare, King Arthur, Macbeth, Beowulf, Song of Roland and even the Bible. J.K. Rowling has blended these literary traditions together and added some secret fairy dust of her own to create the wonder of Harry Potter.Free printable Harry Potter coloring pages: National Literacy Month book crafts - Grand Rapids Holidays | Examiner.com
