*Book Blogger Hop* 16 March 2018



We are on to a new week for the Book Blogger Hop hosted by the lovely folks over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. This weeks questions is:
Who is your favorite children's books author and why? (submitted by Kitty @ Vicarious Bookworm)
It's a tie between Roald Dahl and Shel Silverstein. Matilda was my absolute most favorite book when I was a kid (I read my copy of it literally to pieces), so Roald Dahl had to make my list. But I also super adore Shel Silverstein's funny poetry and hope that I can use it to inspire a love of poetry in my children (once I find my copies of his books**, or buy new ones if mine have legitimately disappeared).

Who is your favorite children's book author? - Katie

**The books have been found. Turns out they were in a box in my closet for four years. Thank goodness for moving.

  1. Roald Dahl is also one of my favourites. I haven't read anything by Shel Silverstein, though I do love poetry too. Mine is here: dustingthesoul.com/2018/03/book-blogger-hop-6/

    1. Really? Shel Silverstein was basically life in elementary school. "Boa constrictor, boa constrictor. I'm being eaten by a boa constrictor." My favorite poem ever! (Might be a bit of an exaggeration.)

      Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

    2. Oh! Actually, I do know that poem, just didn't know the author's name!

  2. Somehow I didn't actually read any Roald Dahl until I was an adult. I'm so sad because I would have adored Matilda!

    1. Matilda is the only Roald Dahl that I read as a kid, I have since expanded my Roald Dahl reading as an adult (but so far only to include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and it's sequel).

      Thanks for stopping by. - Katie

  6. Hi,
    These are 2 great choices! I loved Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, and I read it to my second graders. They loved it to, and I had them draw a picture and write about a candy they invented. I also read them Shel Silverstein books when they were waiting for the bus and when we had a short time before the next activity. The book was so worn out by the end of the year because all the students wanted to read it in their spare time. :) The books are worth buying because you will read them again & again.

  7. Roald Dahl is a great pick! I remember reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. My kids are loving BFG, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and all those. From my childhood, I loved Dr. Seuss.
