I'd recommend reading The BFG if you haven't already. There are words like "frobscottle" (soda pop), "whizzpoppers" (farts), "snozzcumbers" (bitter squash-like veggie). It's a book to love. Buy it here on Amazon.com.
Last week I joined the "Book Buddies" program at work where we're assigned a 3rd grader and a book. We'll read the book and write letters like pen pals to each other. I'm super excited. I can't wait to see what the book is.
What's your favorite childhood book?
