5 Great Chapter Books with Go-Along Movies

Spread the love

For our summer break, we have chosen 5 chapter books that have really good movies made of them. We’re going to read a little of the book each day and then when we finish the book, we’ll have a family movie night and watch the movie with some popcorn or other special treat.

The kids are very excited and we’ve already started on our first book. Here are the books/movies we chose:

  1. Mr. Popper’s Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater

2.  James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake




3.  Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White and Garth Williams







4. Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo


5. The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary and Jacqueline Rogers



Those are the books we’re going to start with. I think we picked some really great books and I’m very excited! If we get through these, we may add a few more. What books are your kids reading this summer? Please comment below!

Happy Summer Reading!
