Our new read aloud is The BFG by Roald Dahl. When orphan Sophie is snatched from her bed by a Giant, she fears he is going to eat her. Although he carries her far away to Giant Country, the Giant has no intention of harming her. As he explains in his own unique way of talking, "I is the only nice and jumbly Giant in Giant Country. I is THE BIG FRIENDLY GIANT. I is the BFG!" The BFG tells Sophie how he mixes up dreams to blow through a trumpet into the bedrooms of sleeping children...
And the story continues... The class is enjoying this book, and are as quiet as a mouse when I'm reading! What will become of Sophie and the BFG? We'll keep you posted! This is one of my favorite children's books and authors.
