Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

Spending "Roald Dahl Day" with Some of His Best Quotes...

“The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.”  - Roald Dahl, Matilda

Today would have been Roald Dahl's 97th Birthday, and September 13th is "Roald Dahl Day"! Here are some quotes to help you celebrate.  Which one is your favorite?  (I especially like the last one.)
