Have Yourself a Matilda Sing-a-Long

One of my favorite memories of the 2012-2013 school year is having a Matilda the Musical sing-a-long with nineteen fourth graders. If you had been a fly hovering over the book nook, it would have been nearly IMPOSSIBLE not to sing along (buzz along?), smile, and laugh. I hope Matilda's brilliant cast and creative team take home many Tonys on Sunday evening. My fingers and toes are crossed for Bertie Carvel (Miss Trunchbull).

Happy watching, singing, and reading! 

"The Smell of Rebellion" 


"Revolting Children" 

Borrow Roald Dahl's Matilda from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops. 


  1. I can't believe that I didn't know about this book, and then my daughter asked if we could go get it from the library last week. And then I saw this post of yours. I think Matilda is in my life for good now! My daughter read me a few pages from the book the other day and they were simply delightful. I'm going to read it after her :)

  2. We love this book and the movie! We have a NYC trip planned and would love to see the musical but the ticket prices are too dang high for this family of four! Thanks for your videos-it's at least a little taste.

  3. Just saw Matilda on Sunday--GREAT! You can go to the box office day of and enter the lottery for a $27 ticket (max 2 per person and only 20 are given away). Google Broadway rush tickets for day of show ticket policies and pricing. Good luck!
