Psychologists Find a Surprising Thing Happens to Kids Who Read Harry Potter

Harry Potter’s greatest feat might not have been defeating Voldemort, but teaching young people around the world to battle prejudice. At least that’s the finding of a new paper in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology, which claims reading the Harry Potter series significantly improved young peoples’ perception of stigmatized groups like immigrants, homosexuals or refugees.

Books will teach the youth to change the world. 

It’s really a shame that reading has never been main-stream. When I hear someone say that they haven’t read a book since high school, or they have never read a book at all, it makes me feel pretty sad for them. The people who read books are the ones who gain knowledge and ways of thinking worthy of changing the world around us. Harry Potter was one of the most important pieces of my childhood, and I think that I owe a lot to J.K. Rowling for inspiring my creativity and imagination. This was a really great article to see. 

So now you know how I feel about reading and Harry Potter.
