Have you read the book yet? Is the book better? Can you watch the movie even though it’s so different from the book? Watching TV and movie adaptations of books can bring up a lot of questions, and we’re answering all of them today.

In today’s episode I’m chatting with my friend (and friend of the show) Latasha Ferguson, a speaker, writer, podcast host, educator, and mom. To say she knows a thing or two about movies and books for our kids would be an understatement!

You know we’re going to make the best list of recent movies (and a few series) based on kids books for you today. And of course, because this is The Couch, where rabbit trails and side notes are always welcome, we’ll also get into coffee, other podcasts, and something called a “15-minute rule.” It’s a good one, so let’s get started!

What should you watch next?


Every month, we are bombarded with new TV series and movies—and it can be overwhelming to figure out what to watch! (I know, I know, what a problem to have!) I'm here to help. My monthly Watch Guides list out all the returning series, new series, and new movies, along with premiere dates and where to watch them. Plus, I tell you my personal picks for the month to help you narrow it all down.

Drop your name and email here, and I'll send you this month's Watch Guide right away!

(Signing up gives me permission to email you. But I will never, ever send you spam or junk. Who has time for that?!)
