BFG has made his way into our home and legos

A recommendation: The BFG 

The BFG (Big friendly Giant) written by Roald Dahl who was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach and several others. His writing is unique and this book (BFG) though full of ideas that are repulsive and strange.. for example giants eating people, the author comes at it in such a way that it is funny and the story was light hearted.

Here is a link to hear Roald Dahl himself read and excerpt from the book: Roald Dahl-characters


It is a great book for both boys and girls. :) All my kids loved it. (ages: 11, 8 and 6) Th BFG himself has quite the vocabulary and the use of words in this book is hysterical and yet at times difficult to pronounce. :)

We were introduced to it by some sweet friends and the result was some pretty fun Lego structures of the BFG himself.



We all have our soap boxes I am sure, but mine is: Pick up a book, a good book, a book that has lasted the test of time and introduce it to your kids. You will never look back. :)

I love Roald Dahl's books and the BFG was well loved by both my girls! I agree - there's nothing quite like a good book for kids.
