Books to Read Before You Watch on Netflix Here are some great shows and movies that started from a great book! Make it a mission for your kids to read (or you read to them) the stories before they watch the movies or shows. It will open up a dialogue about how things change for the screen and how reading the book is always going to be better than watching the movie. Plus, it’s a fun way to keep them reading during the summertime.
