Top Ten Freebie- Ten Books I’ve Recently Read To Children

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, it’s a freebie which means we can pick what we’d like to list! I’ve decided to pick ten books I’ve recently read to my class. If you don’t know already, I’m a primary school teacher- I teach 7-9 year olds. I absolutely love reading to them and I’ve read some gems with them since 2015 when I started with my first class.

The World’s Worst Children- David Walliams

The World's Worst Children

They absolutely adored this book. There’s loads of characters who all get a chapter each. These children are horrendous and so fun to read about like Nigel Nit Boy and Windy Mindy.

Billionaire Boy- David Walliams

Billionaire Boy

This is a book that we’ve recently finished. They absolutely adored it and it had them laughing out loud many a time. It’s all about a boy who comes from a rich family who is desperately trying to fit in.

Stone Age Boy- Satoshi Kitamura

Stone Age Boy

This book was great as a hook into our topic of the Stone Age.

Stone Age, Bone Age- Mick Manning and Brita Granstrom

26830417

This is factual but great fun.

Matilda- Roald Dahl

Matilda

I will always love Roald Dahl and this book warms my heart. They absolutely adored it and loved to hate the Trunchbull.

The B.F.G.- Roald Dahl

The BFG

Another one they loved. They still talk about whizzpoppers now, it’s amazing!

George’s Marvellous Medicine- Roald Dahl

George's Marvellous Medicine

They loved to hate the wonderfully awful Grandma!

The Twits- Roald Dahl

The Twits

The Twits is such a great read. They were howling with laughter.

Charlie and The Chocolate Factory- Roald Dahl

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Charlie Bucket, #1)

Another one they lapped up quickly. My class were so immersed in Roald Dahl.

My Brother’s Famous Bottom- Jeremy Strong

My Brother's Famous Bottom

I tried this book with my class as the author is said to be similar to Roald Dahl. They liked it and of course, loved the word bottom!
