Happy Roald Dahl Day!

I was introduced to the wondrous worlds inside Roald Dahl’s books when I was in 2nd and 3rd grades when my teachers read them aloud to us during story time. My second grade teacher read us Charlie and the Chocolate Factory & my third grade teacher terrified us with The Witches and made us fall in love with The BFG.

Years have passed and I still remember clearly the wonder and excitement I felt as these stories made themselves a part of my life. Now as an adult, a copy of each of these books sit on my bookshelf. While I haven’t read them in a while they continue to bring me, and today’s children the same joy that they brought me.

Thank you Roald Dahl for your contribution to literature and most importantly to the lives of children and adults everywhere. I salute you.
