As both a book lover and library employee, it is my duty to encourage everyone to read the books that movies are based on. Some folks like to read before they watch, while others watch then read. Either way, I’ve put together a list of movies that will be released this fall or winter that are based on well-known children’s books.
If your family wishes to read (or reread) the books before watching the movies, click on the titles below for their link to our catalog.
