At the beach, camping, or activity-filled day camps? Are you making new friends at summer school? Or enjoying the air conditioning and the thousands of amazing free books in your local library?
No matter how you’ve been spending your vacation, take a break from your break, ’cause you’re gonna want to see these movie trailers and teasers for upcoming book-to-movie adaptations!
Based on the novel by Brian Selznick

A Wrinkle in Time
Based on the novel by Madeleine L’Engle
This animated movie adaptation is based on the picture book The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf, which you may have read when you were younger — it looks fun!
