One School, One Book Takes On The BFG

Cover of book by Roald Dahl, The BFG

Waverly Yowell kicked off the Spring edition of its One School, One Book initiative with Roald Dahl’s The BFG.  The BFG (short for “Big Friendly Giant”) is a 1982 children’s book written by British novelist Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake.  It is an expansion of a short story from Dahl’s 1975 book Danny, the Champion of the World.  On March 1, students were treated to the administrative team along with PE teacher Andrew Schmaltz, Art teacher Katie Gigliotti, Librarian Rebecca Jasman, and Instructional Coach Jen Rehm acting out a skit based on The BFG.  Students, staff, and faculty received a copy of the book along with a reading schedule and comprehension questions.  We will be celebrating the end of the book by watching the movie outdoors.
