untitled (23)

Bibliographic Information: Dahl, Roald. (1988). Matilda. New York: Viking Kestrel

Brief Annotation: Matilda is a young girl living with a family that doesn’t want her and blessed with special powers. Matilda has a teacher that wants the best for her and a principal that wants to punish her.

Genre: Science Fiction

Grade Level: 3-5

Readers who will like this: Students who like books about magic

Rating/Response: 4, Matilda is a fun book about a brave young girl. I think a lot of students would have seen the movie so they would like to read the book as well.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: What would you do if you found out you had magic powers?
