One Book 4 Colorado will be back again next April, and voting for next year’s winner is open! The One Book 4 Colorado program aims to get free books into the hands of 4-year-olds across the state each year. Penguin fans rejoice…your favorite flightless bird is the main character in two of the three selections!
December is a great month to watch movies…Here’s an update (from an earlier post) of movies adapted from books hitting theatres in December. Bonus…I cheated by adding a few bonus films that weren’t inspired by books but might make your list….Enjoy!
“No parent likes to hear that their child hates to read. That is especially painful when you work in book publishing. When all of my son’s friends were binge-reading Percy Jackson and Harry Potter, he wanted nothing to do with it.
I brought home book after book in the hope that something would pique my son’s interest and nothing ever did. I would quiz other parents to see what their kids were reading and order those books. They sat in the living room completely untouched.”
