Books Read to the Kids
Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis
I might spend all of December reading Janet Evanovich. I blame my friends Laurie, Sarah, and Rachel.
Movies from Books Watched
Like Water for Chocolate. I actually think I liked the movie better than the book!
Prince Caspian. So the first time I saw the movie, I hadn't read the book in probably 5 years. This time, we had just finished reading the book. Wow! We were all flabbergasted by the changes from book to movie.
