Just finished this charming little book! :)
Boy: Tales of Childhood is a (B) autobiography by Roald Dahl about his experiences growing up. I think this book would be great for an author study (AS) because it really helps you get to know Dahl and how his (funny and endearing) experiences shaped him and led him to write all of the books we know and love. Strangely enough, out of all the books of his I read as a child, this one about himself was my favorite! #LAE3414sp19
Roald Dahl is a writer that I particularly like, so it was a pleasure to get to know him better through these childhood memories.
“If a child picks up a book, and likes it, that‘s not the end of it, you know. It‘s read at least four or five, sometimes fifteen times... and each time — it‘s got to stand up to that.” https://www.facebook.com/BBCArchive/videos/474625489577153/
I hated to learn that he was not the man of integrity I wanted him to be, and feel like, at least if I acknowledge the problems, I can appreciate the benefits. Matilda was so important to me as a child.
Boy by Roald Dahl is a B that is a great novel for students because it demonstrates what a biography is. This book could be a great CR book for the classroom. The following website is run but his fans and has great resources and lesson plans for all his books, including Boy: https://www.roalddahlfans.com/students-teachers/teacher-ideas/boy-tales-of-child....

Boy: Tales of Childhood is a biographical novel written by Roald Dahl. This book could be used for AS and IR. Boy: Tales of Childhood details the life of Roald Dahl by beginning with his family‘s ancestry all the way until his first job as an adult. This novel brings together Dahl‘s life in the changing British 1920‘s and 30‘s, and sheds a light on the living conditions in Britain during that time. #ucflae3414f17
So in June I am working at my part-time job, doing an internship, and taking a 5-week course. Thus, my time to read for fun this month is limited. But I ride the bus to my internship so I can read during that time. I wanted something easy, so I picked up this 175-page autobiography. I love it--funny and interesting! My work actually has an extended edition so I plan to check out and read the extra chapters of it when I finish this edition.
I'm catching up on a few missed posts for #feistyfeb! These are my books with #boyinthetitle. After I took the pic, I realized I should have included The Horse and His Boy! Oh well. China Boy, a semi-autobiographical novel, has been on my #TBR since the author spoke at the graduation ceremony for my publishing program... nearly 14 years ago. One of these days...
Just wanted to share this fun photo I took this morning for my library's Instagram. This also works perfectly for the favorite classics prompt. My favorite Dahl book is The Witches, not pictured because some cool kid already had it checked out. Happy 100th to the late, great Roald Dahl!
