This is an extensive list of kids movies based on books. I’ve tried to keep all of the links updated as much as possible but there’s quite a reading list. I hope this is helpful to you in creating your summer reading list!
Comparing books to movies is a fantastic (and fun!) way for kids to enjoy reading. Over the summer why not pick out a few of these books for your kids to read, then watch the movie together and see how they are different? If you click on each link it will take you to the corresponding book/instant movie/DVD listed on Amazon for instant streaming! A few of them even have audio books and classroom guides too! Don’t forget that many of these titles are available at your local library too! You may also want to read through our creative summer reading ideas.
