4 days and counting...

Have you got that list in order?
What about substituting a couple of movies?

I promised Working Words 100 that 2, set-in-the-South, movies might be substituted for one book. It might really be fun to pair the same Southern book with movie for a full-family, literature-based, activity. I’m big on reading aloud and think To Kill a Mockingbird would be an awesome, summer experience.

Book-2-movie list which compliments our SRC theme:

All the King’s Men
Any John Grisham such as The Firm and A Time to Kill
Because of Winn-Dixie
Big Fish
Cape Fear
Cold Mountain
The Color Purple
Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood
Forrest Gump
Fried Green Tomatoes
Gone with the Wind
The Great Santini
In the Heat of the Night
Last Picture Show
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
My Dog Skip
The Notebook
Terms of Endearment

(play-2-movie) Any Tennessee Williams such as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
