Oh WOW! I love watching and hearing her read Harry. I cried when they were asking her the simple questions,we have heard it over and over, but it never gets boring.‘Why does Harry have that scar?’,etc.And of course she can’t answer it being it might give it away for those who haven’t read. HP7 her fav book,she misses Dumbledore the most.And loved writing about Snape. I would agree with all of that! Leaky please have both videos on here! I didn’t get to see the first part,they had it on the wrong page,and you couldn’t go to where she was. Please! Love you Jo! :)

I love how Jo patiently answers the same questions over and over again when a new child asks it. She is wonderful!

Aww, I love story time so much! That one little blonde girl with the ball cap in the front waited very patiently for her turn.
