I first heard of The BFG when I was in fourth grade. It was read to my class by our teacher. I loved it then, and after seeing it on a list of 50 top children's books I knew I had to read it again!
I'm so glad I did. On top of being a wonderfully entertaining story, it's a much deeper tale than I remember as a child. The book contains illustrations, though, the writing is vivid enough that you don't need them. It teaches a lesson about a humanity, and making new friends.
If you're reading this to your child (Ages 8 and up, though I think it's good for 8 and below) and you live in the United States, there are some terms you may have to explain, as it's set in England and Giant Country.
This is a great book! A great pick me up for adults who love to read more depressing books and a great book for a parent and child to share together.
