Watching a movie or TV show is even more enjoyable when you’ve read the book first, even though the book is usually better. Reading and watching the same story is an especially good idea for kids, too, because it can increase comprehension and invite discussion about similarities and differences. Additionally, if your child doesn’t naturally love reading, the promise of watching the movie after can encourage them.
