Favorite book(s) of the month: every single book I read this month

 

Books started this month but haven't finished yet: Wahrheit gegen Wahrheit, Die Rote Königin, Manga Classics: Macbeth

 

I'm so happy with my last wrap up of the year. I seriously loved all the books that I have finished and I really enjoy the books I'm still in the middle of. I hate that I go into the new year with unfinished books. I like to have a clean slate at the end of the year. But oh well.

Danny the Champion of the World
Danny the Champion of the World - Quentin Blake,Roald Dahl

One of Roald Dahl's less weird books, similar to Esio Trot. Parts are funny, parts are ridiculous, and I will never love it as much as the ones I read as a child (which are of course much more funny and more ridiculous).

Matilda!!!
Matilda - Roald Dahl

german and english review

 

Das Buch steht schon seit Jahren auf meiner Liste von Büchern, die ich unbedingt lesen will. Jetzt liegt es auch schon mindestens ein Jahr bei mir zu Hause und hat darauf gewartet, dass ich es endlich mal aufschlage. Diesen Monat war es so weit.

 

Das Buch ist genauso wunderschön und magisch wie ich es mir erhofft hatte. Ich finde die Geschichte unheimlich schön geschrieben. Ich mag die Idee, dass wenn man zu Hause nicht die Liebe bekommt, die man verdient hat, dass man sie woanders finden kann, in einer Familie, die man sich selbst sucht und ein besseres Leben starten kann.

 

Ich mochte den Schreibstil unheimlich gerne und auch die Illustrationen, die in dem Buch waren, waren einfach verdammt gut gemacht und haben mir super gefallen und der Geschichte noch etwas besonderes gegeben.

This book is forever on my tbr list. And for nearly a year it's actually on my shelve, waiting for me to finally start it. This month it finally happened.

 

The book is just as beautiful and magical as I hoped it would be. I love the story and how beautifully it was written. I love the idea that if you don't get the love that you deserve at home, you can find it somewhere else, a family that you found for yourselve and that you can start in a better life.

 

I loved the writing so so much and the illustrations that were in the book, were just so damn beautiful and gave the whole story something really special.

I Want To Be Friends With the BFG
The BFG - Roald Dahl,Quentin Blake

I LOVE Roald Dahl's, The BFG. Otherwise known as: the Big Friendly Giant. This was the first chapter book I truly enjoyed as I child, and I am currently reading my worn and tattered childhood copy aloud to my son every night. He always begs for me to read one more chapter, reminding me of the same love I had of the story growing up. The BFG centers around a young girl named Sofie, who is scooped up by the giant out of her bed one night. Terrified, because she believes the giant is going to eat her, she soon learns that the BFG is different from normal giants. He is friendly and caring and doesn't eat "human beans" at all. The BFG is full of humor and his silly, jumbled form of language will make any child laugh.

 

The BFG opens the doors for many lessons and activities including:

  • A lesson on character traits, both physical and inner
  • A discussion about the BFG's gobblefunk glossary, prompting students to create some made-up words of their own
  • Have students create a dream jar like the ones described in the book
  • Have students write about their dream(s)

 

Recommended for Ages: 8-12

Lexile Level: 720L

The BFG - Roald Dahl,Quentin Blake

What will happen to Sophie now that she is stuck with the BFG? They will work together to stop the other giants, of course! One night the BFG snatches Sophie in the middle of the night to save her from being eaten by the other giants and takes her to his home. There, Sophie learns a lot about the BFG and how he is not like the other giants at all! They decide to create a plan to capture the other giants so that they will not eat anymore children! They even get some help from the Queen of England! I would use this book to work on comprehension and beginning, middle and end. The students could even create their own dreams or combine dreams from the story.
