Kids' Books On The Big Screen

Join us for our book-to-film book club just for kids! This
month, we’re reading The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. We’ll have a fun book related discussion and fun activity, followed by a viewing of the film adaptation of the book, and a book vs. film
adaptation discussion afterward!
Haven’t read the book? Come on in anyway! The event is
designed to be fun whether you’ve read the book or not,
but will be more enjoyable if you have already read the
story.
The film, The Polar Express, was rated G in 2004.
