I recently read A Wrinkle in Time for the first time ever and am currently reading Ella Enchanted. Every so often I get on a juvenile fiction kick, and I really enjoyed both of these. As I have been reading I’ve thought that both of these books would be excellent read-alouds for young kids. (I can’t wait to start reading chapter books aloud to my kids before bedtime!)
Both of these books have also been made into movies. A Wrinkle in Time was definitely a better book, but that is to be expected. I haven’t yet seen Ella Enchanted, but I’m sure it’s also good.
Reading a book and then watching the movie with your kids is great – you can discuss the differences in the story and characters. I’d recommend reading the book first.
What are some of your favorite juvenile fiction titles???
