Happy (slightly belated) Roald Dahl Day!

Roald Dahl fans, take note! To celebrate the week of his birthday, the internet was full of virtual celebrations. Check out a few for kids as well as for parents and teachers!

One of my fondest elementary school memories took place in 3rd grade, when my teacher read us Danny, the Champion of the World, which remains my favorite Dahl title to this day (I even own the film version starring Jeremy Irons and his son, Samuel). It is one of the lesser read of his works, so if you have not yet ventured beyond The BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, and so on, do give this one a try!
