Roald Dahl Day: Sep. 13

I firmly believe, “Teaching kids to love literature starts by introducing them to the best books.”  My favorite children’s author is Dr. Seuss and his classic books of all times. However, this year thanks to the Multicultural Children’s Book Day, I learned about Roald Dahl. He is well known for creating some of the best children's stories of all time, including mega-hits like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Matilda, and The BFG.
Dr. Seuss and Roald Dahl books have been made into movies than almost any other children's author. They both had placed a days in the calendar to celebrate their books and the author. For instance, Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2 to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday. On the other hand, Roald Dahl Day is celebrated around the world on September 13th. Even though Roald Dahl started out as a pilot in World War I, he became famous for his hilarious and scary stories for kids once the war ended. 

Let’s have fun celebrating Roald Dahl Day by reading his books and making some crafts 
inspired by his entertaining stories.
