Experiencing the fantastic imagination and story-telling genius of Roald Dahl
is an essential component of a well-read childhood. His books are treasures
and are wonderful for reading aloud to elementary aged children.
tells the story of Sophie and her unlikely friendship with a Big, Friendly Giant (the BFG!).
Sophie is a smart, darling little girl that shows a lot of bravery throughout the book.
This is an exciting story that will leave kids begging
to read or hear just one more chapter!
Roald Dahl incorporates some hilarious made-up words into
that delight young readers.
The scenes that play out are so wonderfully imaginative;
picturing them in your mind's eye is a real treat.
I feel it is important to mention that there is a lot of talk about giants harming children in this book.
This talk is handled skillfully and I imagine that most 2nd-5th graders,
even some mature 1st graders, would not be alarmed by it.
It is quickly apparent that The BFG is harmless and that Sophie can trust him.
This is a can't-miss classic that your children will never forget!
