Books You Had To Read In School

My son has been given the GGG (that's BFG in English) by Roald Dahl as part of his summer reading for during the summer break. I remember reading this children's classic when I was a kid and so this got me thinking about a whole bunch of things related to the books we were made to read in school, wish we'd read in school, translated books, and a variety of other things. This video is me thinking out loud about all these topics and wondering what other people think about them too.

What books did you have to read in school? What books did you want to read but weren't chosen for your class? Do you think the books are a different experience depending on the age you were when you read them? Have you read the BFG? Are your kids reading the same books you read at school? Thoughts about translated books?
