Roald Dahl Day, September 13 Roald Dahl Day

Roald Dahl Day is Today, September 13!

Grasshopper and Sensei and PickyKidPix both discovered Roald Dahl in third grade. I think it was the first chapter book author they really fell in love with. Now that my youngest is in third grade, I hope that the magic of Roald Dahl happens again for him and his class.

In honor of Roald Dahl day today, I’m revisiting posts that I’ve done in previous years.

We told her teacher about Roald Dahl day and she wanted to celebrate it as a classroom special day but unfortunately it was too late in the year at September 13. School has barely begun and the teachers are busy assessing where their students are. Too bad. What are your favorite Roald Dahl Books? Read more…
