Childhood Favorites Hit the Big Screen

Curious George

Originally uploaded by jamiemom.

I really enjoy sharing my favorite childhood books with my girls. Several have been made into movies for release in 2006. I read here that the movie rights to Beverly Cleary’s Ramona Quimby books have been sold; one of my favorites was “Ramona the Brave.” Author Cleary turns 90 next year. Also, Charlotte’s Web is being remade for release next year, with Julia Roberts as the voice of Charlotte. We have the original animated movie, which Caitlin eloquently calls “Pig Movie.” Curious George is being released in February, with Will Ferrell filling the role of the man in the yellow hat, and co-starring Drew Barrymore.
