@jeddahsuperreaders

Another one of his more personal works; Dahl dedicated The BFG to his daughter who died at a young age; the main character, Sophie, is named after his granddaughter. An absolutely beautiful piece of writing, this story has several moral and political undertones, that amazingly hold so true even in today’s society! It also highlights themes of bullying and injustice; it talks of how adults take children for granted, and how, sometimes, children may be wiser than adults. . . And guess what?! This intuitive, thought-provoking book is our book of the month for the Junior Readers by @jeddahreads Book Club, starting tomorrow!!! Registrations still open, register your 7-11 year old NOW! . . #roalddahl #happybirthdayroalddahl #thebfg #kidswhoread #readingtips #storytelling #childrensstories #benefitsofreading #bedtimereading #childrensbooks #summerreading #bedtimereading #summerhaul #bookworm #littlebookworm #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #kidsbookstagram #jeddahmom #jeddah #kidsinjeddah #jeddahforkids #jeddahmum #childrenwhoread #kidsthatread #familiesthatread #readingisfun #nationalbookloversday

Our #roalddahlmonth feature for today is #charlieandthegreatglasselevator; another vivid, fantastical book. A sequel to #charlieandthechocolatefactory, the book takes off where the prequel ended... with Willy Wonka bringing Charlie & his family back to the factory, but of course, things go terrible wrong along the way! . . While the context and style of this book are the same as the original story, it does miss a lot of the spark and madness that we would have expected to be carried on! . . #roalddahl #happybirthdayroalddahl #kidswhoread #readingtips #storytelling #childrensstories #benefitsofreading #bedtimereading #childrensbooks #summerreading #bedtimereading #summerhaul #bookworm #littlebookworm #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #kidsbookstagram #jeddahmom #jeddah #kidsinjeddah #jeddahforkids #jeddahmum #childrenwhoread #kidsthatread #familiesthatread #readingisfun #nationalbookloversday

@jeddahsuperreaders

A sly fox, who provides for his family by stealing from three farmers, is under the radar by those farmers. This book is all about the cunning ways Mr. Fox employs to trick the farmers. . In true Dahl style, lots of moral dilemmas to discuss with your children in this story... or, you know, let them just enjoy the wit and fun that this book has! . Easy-to-read for early readers! . . #roalddahl #roalddahlday #fantasticmrfox #happybirthdayroalddahl #kidswhoread #readingtips #storytelling #childrensstories #benefitsofreading #bedtimereading #childrensbooks #summerreading #bedtimereading #summerhaul #bookworm #littlebookworm #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #kidsbookstagram #jeddahmom #jeddah #kidsinjeddah #jeddahforkids #jeddahmum #childrenwhoread #kidsthatread #familiesthatread #readingisfun #nationalbookloversday

I don’t really know what to say about this book... didn’t really like it too much; neither did Umar. But that could be due to his age... at 7.5 years (which is when we read it... HIS age, not mine 🙄), he’s used to books with more excitement than this. . . Not to say that this is a bad book. I’m sure children of the 3-6 age bracket will love it. It does highlight themes of endurance, perseverance and how these factors help you reach for dreams beyond your limit- literally and figuratively! So these are good things we want to teach our children, right? . . Picture also features the tanned hand of an impatient boy wanting his timepiece back to continue his game that was rudely interrupted by an Insta-prop-needing mother! . . #roalddahl #roalddahlday #thegiraffethepellyandme #happybirthdayroalddahl #kidswhoread #readingtips #storytelling #childrensstories #benefitsofreading #bedtimereading #childrensbooks #summerreading #bedtimereading #summerhaul #bookworm #littlebookworm #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #kidsbookstagram #jeddahmom #jeddah #kidsinjeddah #jeddahforkids #jeddahmum #childrenwhoread #kidsthatread #familiesthatread #readingisfun #nationalbookloversday

The Twits- another one of Dahl’s easier-to-read novels, and was incidentally the first novel Umar read by himself earlier this year. It’s short, it’s hilariously funny, and it centers around the repulsively disgusting Mr. Twit and Mrs. Twit, in a way that does appeal to kids. I also loved dressing Umar up as Mr. Twit a few weeks after that for book character day at school! #roalddahlmonth . . #roalddahl #roalddahlday #thetwits #happybirthdayroalddahl #kidswhoread #readingtips #storytelling #childrensstories #benefitsofreading #bedtimereading #childrensbooks #summerreading #bedtimereading #summerhaul #bookworm #littlebookworm #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #kidsbookstagram #jeddahmom #jeddah #kidsinjeddah #jeddahforkids #jeddahmum #childrenwhoread #kidsthatread #familiesthatread #readingisfun #nationalbookloversday

Happy Birthday to Roald Dahl. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was the first chapter book I remember reading. And, before I knew it, I read through all his books. What a fabulous, imaginative trip they took me on. Thank you, Roald Dahl, for making my childhood so magical and memorable! #roalddahl #happybirthdayroalddahl #charlieandthechocolatefactory #charlieandthegreatglasselevator #matilda #thewitches #goingsolo #bookstack #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookwineandmetime #booksharks

Our first book tasting!!! In celebration of Roald Dahl’s birthday, I surprised my class with a quick room transformation during recess into the Dahl Restaurant. They went from rows of desks to table clothed groups, with menus of Roald Dahl’s most cherished children’s books. They loved it! They had the chance to “taste” 4 books with just a simple writing after each “course.” After the meal we enjoyed some real snacks of snozzcumbers grown in Giant Country, peaches from James Henry Trotter, Frobscottle brewed by the BFG, with a taste of Willy Wonka’s sweet treats! It was such a great afternoon and the kids were NOT ready to be done reading these books after the tasting was over. They loved my role as hostess, waitress, and head chef and were adorably excited to play along with me and customers at this upscale restaurant! Love my class! #booktasting #roalddahl #roalddahlday #happybirthdayroalddahl #iteachfifth #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #lovebooks #lovereading #classroomtransformation #surprise #fridaythe13th

Can’t believe that I just about missed Roald Dahl Day in all the weekend madness!!! . A man who has inspired and livened up the childhoods of generations of children. A lesser known fact is that he wrote for adults as well, and that his initial writings stemmed from his time spent as a pilot in World War 2. We, however, love him for what he’s known best for- one of the most popular children’s writers of all times! .

Happy Roald Dahl Day! When I was in second grade, Miss Emerson read The BFG out loud to our class. I thought it was hysterical, and insisted we read a copy at home as well.

Roald Dahl was such a big part of my childhood. I remember vividly how much reading his stories made me laugh! His stories showed me the oddity and the magic of the world around us. I love how much my boys adore the same stories now and that we get to enjoy them together. #happybirthdayroalddahl #roalddahlday #lovetoread

Today is @roald_dahl's birthday, a man who's one of our favourite authors --- #Matilda was one of the first books we ever read as kids, and we fell in love with the world of reading ever since. Dahl's words and @quentinblake's accompanying drawings have always made us chuckle and ponder at many a time, and many people still sometimes go back to the pages of #TheBFG or #DannyTheChampionOfTheWorld when looking for some inspiration and laughter. And among our favourites is also #CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory that makes us believe that good always wins over evil.. and that there's no such thing as too much #chocolate! Pick up Dahl's books at any age and any moment, and they're bound to make you smile --- and that's the real power of the written word! Happy Birthday @roald_dahl 🎈 We hope you're enjoying a nice meal of Snozzcumbers and Frobsottles to celebrate up in heaven! Do you have a favourite childhood author or #Dahl book?

13 septembrie 1916 e o zi importantă pentru o gașcă de personaje îndrăgite de copiii din întreaga lume: Matilda, Marele Uriaș Prietenos, Charlie, Willie Wonka, James, George și mulți alții. De ce? Pentru că e ziua în care s-a născut creatorul lor. 🎉 📚Ca să-l cunoașteți mai bine pe Roald Dahl, ne-am propus să-l sărbătorim nu doar o zi, ci o săptămână. Vă invităm pe blogul Arthur să citiți o serie de amănunte neobișnuite și minunate despre autorul britanic, poezii în avanpremieră traduse de Florin Bican, dar și părerile unor cititori care tocmai i-au descoperit cărțile: ⬇️⬇️⬇️ http://bit.ly/2mcLKIZ .

Happy birthday, Roald Dahl. Here’s passing a bit of your-favourite-yellow-love along. 🌼 “The more risks you allow children to take, the better they learn to take care of themselves. If you never let them take any risks, then I believe they become very prone to injury. Boys should be allowed to climb tall trees and walk along the tops of high walls and dive into the sea from high rocks. The same with girls. I like the type of child who takes risks. Better by far than the one who never does so.” 🌼 Incidentally the 9yo was born on Friday the 13th & which gave her a reason to be extra chirpy this morning. 🌼 #HappyBirthdayRoaldDahl #BestAuthor #ThankYou #FridayTheThirteenth #RoaldDahl #ChildrenBooks #BestSelling #HallOfFame #Bookstagram #Yellow #Bookish #IgReads #SKMKStories #HomeLibrary #BookwormLife #Bibliophile #RoaldDahlDay

The Conjurer: When a kid asked me "Who is Roald Dahl?" I replied, "A magician". To me, more than a writer, Roald Dahl is an inventor of magical worlds- a world with an unlimited supply of chocolate, a world where resides a big friendly giant, a world where a wicked principal is avenged by a little girl...A world where the extraordinary meets the ordinary. Thank you, Roald Dahl, for endowing us with an enchanted childhood!

Happy Fri-Yay everyone 😘 Today is Roald Dahl Day, which also coincides with his birthday 🎂. Roald Dahl would've been 103 years old today. We love this kindness quote from his book 'The Twits'. Random fact- Roald Dahl wrote his first book, The Gremlins, for Walt Disney, in 1943, and the story was later made into a Disney film. #roalddahlday #roalddahlquote #happybirthdayroalddahl #kindness #LolaCare #SupportLocalBusiness #LocalService #Tiverton #Devon

What a strange, amusing, and wonderful read this was! I can't believe I put off reading about this extraordinary child Matilda until now, considering how I finished it in one sitting 😅 (yes, slow reader me did THAT. Full credits to the book) . I really liked Dahl's writing voice - you know it's meant for kids but he doesn't dumb down anything and does not sound condescending. His stories teach kids important stuff like being wary of adults (can confirm it's a good lesson; I, too, am wary of adults) without sounding preachy. I absolutely loved the interactions between Miss Honey and Matilda. . This reminded me of one of his short stories "The Umbrella Man" that was part of our English text in school. I reread it last night and got hit by a whole train of nostalgia!!😅 . . . There's a whole bunch of children's classics I need to catch up on and of course, there's all the "grown-up" literature I want to read too. . QOTD: Which alien race should I offend to get arrested and carted off to a distant planet with good prisoner benefits - such as access to a huge library and no internet connection?

Too many of us forget to nourish our inner child and let them shine outwardly. We hide away our innocence 💛 (often mistaken for naivety), shut down our imagination 🌎 (constantly mistaken for delusion) and dismiss our playfulness 🤸🏽‍♀️ (often mistaken for immaturity)😪. ———— But Roald Dahl was someone who instilled in a lot of us, as kids, with the belief that all our innate childish goodness was what the world needed more of. And those were the tools needed to live the greatest, most fulfilling of lives. That we didn’t need to shed our childish wonder and grow up... instead “grow down” 👧🏽👦🏻🎈✨. Happy Birthday Roald Dahl. Your wisdom and imagination continues to feed the inner child in so many of us 🌟🧡

✨💜dear roald dahl, thank you for making me fall in love with reading. 📖 ✨💙dear third grade teacher, thank you for the waldenbooks gift card so i got to go pick out & buy my very own dahl books. i started with "the wonderful story of henry sugar -and six more-" although the one story about the turtle still bores me. i did spend years practicing staring into a candle flame so i could learn to see through cards & give all my gambling money to orphans, just like henry sugar, though. and matilda is my hero. even if i did wear out my copy of the BFG first. and i can't help but laugh at the twits. and because of you, and other wonderful educators, i now paint pictures based on all my favourite stories. just like "what a dahl: bluestocking matilda" & "a chocolate inheritance" #faeritetalefeet greeting cards you see here. 📖 ✨❤️dear you, whoever you are seeing this, i hope you also love reading. and if you were one of the ones who donated or shopped for our title one elementary book fair fundraiser, i hope you know you are making 24 lucky students fall in love with reading, too. we were able to give $10 gift certificates to EACH classroom for the teacher to award a bookish shopping spree to a student who doesn't have their own book money. happy tears. lots of happy tears. & thank you. i'll be visiting the art class next week and can't wait to share their happy faces. :) 📖 which author made you fall in love with reading? 📖 do you remember your first trip to the book store (or book fair)? 📖 #dahlday #happybirthdayroalddahl #thewonderfulstoryofhenrysugar #matilda #bookishart #etsyshop #halthegal #storyart #bookart #fanart #dahlart ❤️ #bookqueenssept18: bookish artwork • #bookishschools18 : magical place? the bookstore! • #bluelovesbookishsept18 : thriller - #thewitches#allthebookssept18 : fave book by fave author • #septinbooks18 : fave villains (dahl has loads of ridiculous grown*ups) • #septbookstagram18 : does a grumpy british guy count as a diverse author if i'm a happy american female? 😅
