Staying on top of the summer slide

My son, Benjamin, and I recently finished reading “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” by Roald Dahl. I am not sure who enjoyed the book more — he or I! Dahl provides children and adults great imagination through text.

Ben, who is only 3, and I love to create a picture in our minds from the chapters I read to him. He got such a kick out of the character Violet Beauregarde turning into a blueberry and the Oompa-Loompas rolling her around. We laughed for a few minutes!

Ben’s next choice to read is “James and the Giant Peach,” another popular book by Dahl.
