The Ultimate Guide to Charlie
and the Chocolate Factory
Intro & Review:
My children are deprived. They are not allowed to watch Alice in Wonderland or Charlie in the Chocolate Factory (you know the creepy ones with Johnny Depp.) I have to say I am really disappointed in current media’s representation of these two classics since I grew up watching Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory! I really would love to share with my children some of the joys of my childhood.
Well, now I can with Jump Into a Book’s The Ultimate Guide to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Wow, Audrey Press’ and Valarie Budayr’s Jump Into a Book concept is absolutely amazing! You will get to experience a book like no other! Yes, it is digital. Yes, it is media, but the great oldies but goodies are here to stay! This digital option allows for expanded learning before or after reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. (I just downloaded the audiobook from our local library!) I know they are going to be very excited to hear the book before we watch the video. After that we will be diving back into The Ultimate Guide to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for even more fun!
Are you ready to become a Book Jumper? What is a Book Jumper you ask? Well, I am not able to describe quite like Valarie Budayr a.k.a “Magic Book Lady” so I’m just going to quote her:
“Book Jumping are stories that reawaken the passionate idea of living inside the pages of a book.” Each story is a gateway into a magical world where stories are not just read, but are also acted out through crafts, games, tutorials, and adventures.”-
How about you? Are you ready to Jump Into a Book? Join me as we take a wonderful journey into The Ultimate Guide to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I am going to give you a peek inside while we explore what book jumping has to offer.
Here’s a small “taste” of the fun we had:
We chose to melt pretzels and dip them into chocolate. We used a slightly different idea than in the book, but still had lots of fun! The kids were begging to do more things with candy so we did. We did candy experiments using Wonka candy. (We will showcase that on Wacky Wednesday!)
They were very interested in learning more so that is why I got the audiobook from the library for us to enjoy so we didn’t spoil too much about the story before going further into The Ultimate Guide to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I’ve sneaked a peak and was very impressed with all the ideas and how the book is organized. If you want to try a unit study with a literature base, then The Ultimate Guide to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory would be a great place to start.
