As if we need another reason to indulge in Harry Potter!

There’s now proof our binge reading or watching rituals are actually necessary…if we want to be better people.

According to a few recent studies, kids who read Harry Potter are less prejudice towards minorities.

A 2016 study from University of Pennsylvania linked Harry Potter readers to those who have low opinions of President Trump.

The Huffington Post reports a 2015 study looked at personalities of real Potter fans and how they measured up to real house traits Gryffindor’s bravery and heroism Hufflepuffs who are friendly and fair Ravenclaw’s witty and intelligent traits and members of Slytherin who are ambitious and cunning.

Researchers found they pretty much matched up.

So dive – what do you have to lose!
