Roald Dahl for September

This month we’re celebrating Roald Dahl, an icon of the children’s book world.

I thought I would send out a little note to everyone, reminding you to mark September 13th, HIS BIRTHDAY, on your calendar.  This would be a great birthday to celebrate in your classroom or at home with your own kids or grands.

Grab a copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, or Fantastic Mr. Fox.  After reading one of these favorites, check out the movie version for your next family movie night.

I will also be sharing some thoughts and ideas on other Dahl books throughout the month, so be sure to check back from time to time on Roald Dahl updates.

Now go ahead! Mark your calendar for September 13th and plan a special birthday celebration in honor of our beloved Roald Dahl, complete with your own chocolate  treats.

If you don’t have your own copies of these books, purchase The Roald Dahl Treasury, a collection of his stories, complete with wonderful illustrations.
