The magical world of Harry Potter offers the perfect escape — and now celebrities are reading the first book about The Boy Who Lived as part of the Harry Potter at Home initiative through Wizarding World to bring that magic even closer to home.

Daniel Radcliffe started things off, reading the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. He’ll be followed by celebrities, such as Stephen Fry, David Beckham, Dakota Fanning, Claudia Kim, Noma Dumezweni, Eddie Redmayne, and more to be announced later. There’s a total of 17 chapters, which leaves the door open for plenty of magical surprises.

Videos will become available at (watch Radcliffe here) and an audio-only version will also be on Spotify.

Kids with an artistic side can even be featured in the videos! Parents can submit kids’ artwork based on the iconic scenes from the novel for the chance for their work to show up alongside the celebrity reader. Parents can find all the rules for submissions here.

The at-home experience offers even more Harry Potter-themed fun to be had: Families can dive into quizzes, puzzles, and everything else the Wizarding World has to offer.

As a kid, Nicole either wanted to be a professional toy player-wither or a writer. Somehow, as social media editor for The Toy Insider, The Toy Book, and The Pop Insider, she’s found a career as both. She's grateful to work somewhere that she can fully embrace both her love of teddy bears and her admiration for the Oxford comma. When she's not playing with toys at work, she's playing with her baby girl at home.
