As read-alouds, DS3.5 loves Roald Dahl, particularly "Fantastic Mr. Fox" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". (Frankly, Fantastic Mr. Fox is a bit of an obsession!)

We've also come across a series called "Body Battle" by Vicki Cobb that features electron microscope images of various cells in the body responding to colds, cavities, scraped knees, etc, which are a big hit.

What is to give light must endure burning.
