I was obsessed with Roald Dahl's books in third and fourth grade. I could not get enough of his marvelous and strange books. I probably checked out Matilda and The BFG from the Tinley Park Public Library at least twenty-five times. I can still visualize exactly where both books sat on the shelf. (I later stole a copy of Matilda from my sixth-grade teacher's classroom library, but that's a story for a later blog post.)
Roald Dahl Day takes place every year on September 13. I compiled resources to help you celebrate Dahl's special day. Happy watching, reading, and exploring!
