Today is bring your favourite book to school day. Charlie and the Chocolate factory was such an imaginative story. This was one of my favourite books when I was a kid. A world filled with chocolate and candy was beyond my wildest dreams! My favourite part of the story was when Charlie won the golden ticket to enter the Chocolate Factory and who could forget the river of chocolate! I loved Charlie's character in the book. He was considerate and humble, two characteristics I really like in people.

What is your favourite book? What do you like about the book? Who is your favourite character in the book? Do you have a favourite quote? Have your read any other books by the same author?

Hi everyone, here are some videos from Study Jams to help you review for the test tomorrow! Good Luck!
