I dont only have jk rowling to thank for my magical childhood, my dad played a role in that as well. When I was too young to read, my dad would read to me and my brother Harry Potter for a bed time story.
He read them all up to Half Blood Prince but by the time Deathly Hallows came out I could read for myself. He has lost interest in them and hasn't read DH.
Without my dad's patience for reading them to me I wouldn't have had a magical childhood!
