A couple months ago I decided that it would be fun to start reading chapter books with Ben, and he was excited about the idea too. I thought what better books to start off with then Roald Dahl. Ben has seen a few of his books which have been turned into movies and I remember loving reading some of them when I was a kid. We started with The BFG. I wondered how well Ben would be able to pay attention, considering the lengthy chapters and lack of pictures. I had my doubts until he started to talk about things we had read the night before and I realized that although he misses several of the details, he was following the plot line of the story. Plus we got a good laugh together out of the "whizz poppers."
