Read Aloud: Roald Dahl
You are probably familiar with
but I want to encourage you to read aloud
the books above with your children.
Two pages of his books are better
than an entire movie. I promise.
And don't forget a great read for you:
You might want to read this first.
His life reads like fiction:
family misfortune, boarding school torment
(which explained for me a lot of his
subject matter), and fascinating
career paths (including that of a spy).
Despite it all, he was passionate
about children learning how to read,
and that inspires me. He created a
haven for children, out of words.
A home that celebrates literacy.
And you can find every room of the Dahl house
at the library.
