In the video posted on Instagram, the girl’s aunt thanked everyone who donated towards the cause.
“Thank you to everyone who donated and made this Christmas extra special for my niece Emrie! As you can see, she is beyond excited to be able to read the Harry Potter books herself! (sic),” Katelyn wrote in the post.
