September 13 is “Roald Dahl Day” and our top pick for this week’s learning!
We started reading The BFG yesterday and I can already tell that it’s going to be one of our favorite stories. A movie marathon (with the help of our local library) is part of this week’s agenda, too: The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Here’s our family’s list of the online resources as we learn about Roald Dahl and his career as one of the most popular children’s authors of all time.
