This winter has brought chilly temperatures and some nasty viruses into our house, so we did what anyone does when they need to stay in and rest, we watched movies!
Aside from being a family who loves movies, we are also a family who loves to read. I am grateful that my children have developed a love for books. Discovering the magic in books is priceless and it’s a lot of fun to read stories and then watch the movies that are based on those stories!
- Hunger Games
- Lord of the Rings
- Percy Jackson
- The Princess Diaries
- The Babysitter’s Club
My seven year old is also a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings and Percy Jackson, but there are several other children’s movies based on books that you can find on Netflix. Take a look at these popular titles:
- How to Train Your Dragon
- Peter Pan
- Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat
- The Ant Bully
- The Iron Giant
Another popular children’s movie that originated from a book is The Adventures of Puss in Boots. It arrived on Netflix January 16th, starring one of the most celebrated characters for kids.
The world’s greatest fighter, lover and milk connoisseur springs into action with comical tales that take him to exotic locations, filled with unforgettable characters. As Puss embarks on adventures that are the stuff of legend, nothing can stand in the way of this swashbuckling hero … except a hairball!
