Some parents have been concerned about letting their children read the Harry Potter series of books for a variety of reasons. Many parents have gotten around their concerns by reading the books with their children - together.
Other parents, especially of older children, let them read the book but spend time discussing it with them. There are some fairly violent and "dark" parts, especially in the later books; but, there are some wonderful moral and life "lessons" as well - if only they can be talked about.
