Turning Favorite Books Into Movies

by jessicaturner on April 13, 2009

Elias LOVES being read to. Right now we mostly read simple board books since he likes grab every page and I am certain regular books would be torn to shreds and then the shreds would be sucked on.

When he gets a little older, I know we will enjoy the book, Where the Wild Things Are because seriously, what child doesn’t love this book.

I was delighted to learn that a movie is coming out based on the book. It looks adorable. Check out the trailer.

What children’s book do you think they should turn into a movie?

Eloise comes to mind for me. I love that story.

I think the trailer looks really good. I am sure Elias will love it when he is able to understand :)

I remember when I wa s abit younger really wanting the Cat in the Hat to be made into a film and it was!

My niece loves this book called the “The Cuddly Bear and the Mountain” and I think it would make a great movie about teaching kids the joys of camping, outdoors, nature etc!

Have a great Monday! xxx.

My son loved Patrick’s Dinosaurs. You should check it out when he’s a little older.

Hopefully it’s not terrifying… the cute music made the trailer not so scary, but those wild things could easily send a child into therapy if it’s not done right…

I am so excited to see this one too! I am like you, I love reading to my kids and want them to love the classics! I would LOVE to see the Very Hungry Caterpillar in a theatre near me!

I went to the movies this weekend and did you know that Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is going to be a movie also! I am so excited because I love this book. If you have never read it, you should because it is so cute!

Eloise is a movie :)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0346932/

Books that are movies that I love:
Charlotte’s Web
Anne of Green Gables
and Little Women.

Books that I felt they could’ve done better:

James and the Giant Peach

Books I’d like to see turn into movies:
I think the Magic Tree House books would be fun for kids to make into movies.
Bark, George! would be funny.
Pigeon books by Mo Williems (I think Pixar would be a great rendition of these…their Pigeons in Bolt were hilarious)

I am sure their are more but that is all I can think of for right now :)

Did you know that Scholastic has an illustrated movie version of the book available? It is basically narration of the story over the book’s original illustrations that “move” – it’s wonderful for young kids. Highly recommended.
