March is Reading Month, Tip #26: Check Out the Movie Version!

Check out the Movie Version!

Get out the popcorn! One of my favorite things to do is to watch a movie and then compare it to the book (or kvetch how much better the book was...) There are great movies, great books, and great books that became movies.

Today we will discuss the latter. Some of my favorite movies from books are Babe, Charlotte's Web, Harry Potter (for older kids), Alice in Wonderland, Winnie the Pooh, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Wizard of Oz, and Ramona and Beezus.

Here's a great list of movies-from-books for grown-ups and kids alike. And another list with just kid movies-from-books. And here's a great place to check out the appropriateness of movies for different age groups.

So, get out the popcorn and the raisinets.  It's show-time!
