children’s books being made into movies

There are more children’s books being made into movies (and a TV special). I always hope that this will encourage readers to pick up the book, if they haven’t already.

The movie will be a stop-motion animated film

The Secret History of Tom Trueheart

The movie will be a CGI animated feature film

Something From Nothing

    Any suggestions for a middle school “books made into movies” class?

  2. Cheryl Says:

    Perhaps you could find middle-grade books that have been made into movies, bring in a copy or copies of each one, and have the kids point out which books they’ve read, and which books they’ve seen the movies to? And then read a book that they’ve watched the movie of, but haven’t read the book? (Inkheart has also been made into a movie, and it’s a fantastic middle-grade book. And Nim’s Island.)
