50 Fabulous Movies based on Children's Books

50 fabulous movies based on children's books


I am always trying to make reading exciting for my kids.  One way I've found to encourage their reading is to promise checking out a movie after they have read the book.  My boys are a bit too young for this to be super effective, but my daughter loves it!  This is a list of 50 quality books that have pretty great movies to go along with them.  Please check for ratings and age appropriateness for your kiddo, pop some popcorn, and enjoy!
