Harry Potter's Effect on Children

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The 7th Potter book is expected to be the fastest-selling book ever. Bookstores around the Tri-Cities and Yakima say hundreds of the new Potter books are already reserved and they expect to sell the rest in the next few days.

Librarians say that this is great for local teachers and schools because it means thousands of kids are taking an interest in books.

But even with the excitement, they say that parents should be careful when their children are reading the new book. Rumors say that it could have a death at the end and librarians say parents should make sure they talk to their children and ask them to explain how they feel.
