Meet Sophie and hear the moment she first meets The BFG in this extended audiobook clip:

BFGOne of the BFG’s biggest assets is his extraordinary hearing (just look at those ears!), and it’s his ability to listen that shapes the unique way he experiences the world.

Sharpen young listeners’ critical thinking and active listening abilities with audiobooks! They help enhance vital literacy skills like fluency, pronunciation, comprehension, and they build
vocabulary (including some of Roald Dahl’s own
creation like hopscotchy, snozzcumber, and scrumplet!)

Plus, THE BFG makes the perfect family listen—listening together offers opportunities for shared literary experiences and it’s a springboard for conversation.

“Dahl’s classic story…comes to life in this audiobook read by David Williams…Sound effects and music enhance the telling. Children will want to listen to the story again and again.”—School Library Journal

“Roald Dahl sometimes shared a tonal kinship with Ogden Nash, and he could demonstrate a verbal inventiveness nearly Seussian…[His] stories work better in audio than in print.”—The New York Times
