Behind many good films, there’s often a great book.
This guide to films that are based on books on TV this Christmas gives a glimpse of the breadth of the human imagination in the stories that we tell: stories that comfort and inform us, that entertain and thrill us, that keep us on the edge of our seats or up late into the night as we read just one more page… stories that make us think about ourselves and others, and most often, about our place in our friendships, our families and society itself.
Our school library and your local library are wonderful places – places where you are surrounded by stories that can transport you to new worlds and different times, make you laugh out loud, scare you silly or even make you cry (if that’s what you want). Why not go along to your library and borrow a book for the holidays?
Happy viewing – and reading!
