I’m feeling a little nostalgic. Feeling a little bit like an old lady. I remember when people used to have the conversation about whether the book was better than the movie or the movie better than the book.

How do we get our kids excited about great literature when there are so many other books out there for them to read. While the Harry Potter series is a modern classic there are still so many great books out there and great stories that may go unread if we don’t help our kids find them.

So many stories today take their roots from these great classics. Many kids never read these books or even see these movies unless they have a book report to write. And more and more book reports are becoming a thing of the past.

One thing we can do is bring back some great movies based on great classic literature. Maybe this next family movie night watch a classic. Who knows? Perhaps it will inspire your kids to read the book. It might even inspire you to read it with them which would be a double bonus.
