Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Although I never was interested in the Harry Potter series, I started listening to the books on the way to work — just as a way to connect with my son. It worked brilliantly to spark great conversation between us and, actually, the story is very good as well. I think fantasy and make-believe have a vibrant role in the healthy development of the human mind. I like to stay just a couple of chapters behind my son so that he's leading the charge and knows things that I don't yet. It's working out well and has been a very big win for our relationship.
