I remember taking a college course called something like “Intro to Fiction and Film.” We would read the book and then watch the movie in class. Who would have thought that movies based on books on Netflix would be a thing…15 years later!
Then, we’d have discussions about the similarities and differences. I recently stumbled upon a similar list on Netflix and thought I would share what I found.
This list of movies based on books for ages 8-10. If you’d like more direction or opinion about that, check out Common Sense Media. These are great for sick days, school breaks, Summer break, or general enrichment.
These movies include feel-good, family movies that you can feel comfortable letting your kids watch alone or streaming them on family movie night. These are great selections to add to your Netflix list.
