Family Dinner Book Club: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Charlie gets one of the lucky golden tickets and is headed for a tour of a very amazing chocolate factory. But, that is just the start of Charlie’s luck. Go on the tour with Charlie. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is by Roald Dahl.
I’m pleased to share six conversation starters to get your Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryCharlie and the Chocolate Factory book club rolling. Just click on this link (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’s Conversation Starters) for a one-page PDF file that you can print and then cut apart. Use the cards on your chosen dinner night. You, of course, don’t have to use all of them or you may even have some other discussion points that developed while you were reading. These are just meant to be a guide. Happy talking!
- Do you think that each person who received a golden ticket deserved it? Why or why not?
- If you could only take one person on a special trip, who would you choose and why?
- If you could design another room in the factory, what would you call it? What candy would be invented in that special place?
- How does Charlie and the Chocolate Factory speak to the phrase “Good things come to those who wait”?
- Describe Charlie’s family. How is it similar to yours? How is it different?
- Imagine that there was one more ticket available and a new child found it. What are they like? How do they feel about visiting the chocolate factory?
Adapting for Different Ages
Though Family Dinner Book Club works very well for children ages 4-8, you can adapt the club for younger and older children. Older children may prefer to read the chapter book independently and then discuss it together as a family.
