Last year, Charlie caught the end of one of my favourite films – the original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The fact it had his name in really drew him in but it prompted me to find a copy of the book. Despite only just being 5, we decided to start reading a chapter to him and he was engrossed. He would beg for more and this is where the love of Roald Dahl began.
We have move onto the Horrid Henry books lately – he seems to love them but I sometimes wish he had never discovered them as that Henry boy is blimmin horrid! Having to read about snot and burping isn’t always the best way to end the day but I don’t want to deter him from loving books. I’m hoping to get the entire Roald Dahl collection for Christmas for him and then the girls to read.
Its lovely for me to hear him read as I haven’t read it since I was a young girl so it’s lovely to refresh as I can’t remember all the story that well!
Can anyone recommend anymore ‘classic’ books? We have quite a collection but always looking to add more!
