The book The Witches by Roald Dahl is about a group of witches who hide in secret and are sought to be defeated by a young boy.He devises a plan to take down the grand high witch which succeeds and the boy-turned mouse saves the day. I remember reading this story when I was in about the fourth grade and I really enjoyed it. An activity i would do with my class regarding this book would be to have my students write a "how to" text about how to recognize a witch. Once the text is written accurately, I would have them draw a picture below of a witch like the ones from the book. I would give this book a three and a half stars out of five and is listed as a 740L on the Lexile scale.
