Roald Dahl Estate launches playlist on YouTube Kids for 100th anniversary

To mark the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl, his grandson, Ned Donovan, has created a playlist of content that commemorates the author’s work.

Dubbed Celebrating 100 Years of Roald Dahl on YouTube Kids, the playlist has been designed to inspire a love of learning in kids as part of the YouTube Kids’ #TodayILearned campaign for September.

“It’s really exciting to see how, 100 years after his birth, my grandfather’s work continues to captivate and inspire millions of children around the planet,” said Donovan.

The playlist boasts step-by-step arts and crafts with Claudia Winkleman and a BFG story time with David Walliams for fans to enjoy.

Donovan added: “Roald once said that ‘those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.’ I hope the YouTube Kids playlist designed to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl can guide a new generation, to the gloriumptious magic of the world’s number one storyteller.

“Whether it’s learning to draw with Quentin Blake, or reading Matilda with Kate Winslet, thanks to YouTube Kids regardless of where you are, a new door into the world of Roald Dahl has been opened.”
