I always do Winn-Dixie as a read aloud, then get permission from parents to show the movie (it's PG). The kids fill out a venn-diagram comparing the movie with the book. My premise is that the book is "always" better than the movie. They usually agree with me by the end. It is a great exercise, and I'm always surprised at how many similarities and differences that they find. I also do this with "James and the Giant Peach." The kids get mad that the Cloudmen are left out of the movie! BTW, the only media production that I've found that IS better than the book is "Wicked."
