Name a children's book that has been made into a Christmas movie. If you can't come up with a title, just name a children's Christmas book. Here's a book that was turned into a film that many may not remember: The Story of Holly and Ivy.:gelf:

I remember The Best Christmas Pagent Ever being turned in to a TV movie. It was back in the early 80's. It wasnt bad, but it didn't do the book justice. Does anyone else remember this movie?

I remember reading the book many years ago and I knew it had been made into a movie, but I don't think I ever saw it.

Oh, not really. I just read the title of the thread, didn't see the "children's" part...ooops :)

Actually it first came out in novel form, but recently was converted into a children's picture book! So it does count.

I haven't read the book or seen the movie, but I would think Polar Express would be another.

I would say ''The Snowman'', published in 1978 by English author Raymond Briggs.
4 years later, was turned into a movie (short, animated one, without words). :)
