Book to Movie

Perhaps you’ve seen the movie but haven’t read the book - or the other way around. Comparing movies and books promotes critical thinking and sequencing skills. Did the movie stay true to the book? Did the actors portray the characters as you imagined them to be? Is it better to read the book before you see the movie? All of the books below either have a movie adaptation currently or one coming out in 2014. And, remember, while some books may be appropriate for younger children, the film adaptation is sometimes more appropriate for older viewers
