Readers who will like this: I think this book is great for anyone that is into giants or imaginative creatures. I grew fond of the bond between the two of these characters and I think this is something all readers will enjoy.
Rating/Response: 5 I have never read this book but heard it was great from many people my own age. I loved reading it and found it to be really loving and goofy at the same time.
One question you would ask before a read aloud: What does BFG stand for?!
Reading Strategy: Free Choice
Rationale for Strategy: I chose this book because it was a popular book when I was a kid but never read it. I felt it was important for me to read it so I knew what it was about. I think this book would be a great day-to-day read-aloud with my students.
