Read These Books Before They're Movies!

by ParentCo. January 08, 2016

ATTENTION, PARENTS: The Little Prince will hit the silver screen in 2016!

As will The Great Gilly Hopkins, Tarzan of the Apes, and a re-booted The Jungle Book. Snuggle up with your kiddos and devour the written words before you're lured by gummy bears and popcorn to the theater. Since the dawn of moving pictures, we've debated the integrity of a good book's adaption to film. So, you best get busy if you want to be able to say: THE BOOK WAS BETTER. Find the full list of books headed for Hollywood in this post over at Common Sense Media. Need more book ideas? Check out The Best Children's Books of 2015, a list curated by the master, Maria Popova (@brainpicker), over at Brainpickings.org. https://www.brainpickings.org/2015/12/15/best-childrens-books-2015/
