Video Wednesday: The Tale Of Despereaux

I am so excited for The Tale of Despereaux movie coming out on December 19! I loved the Newbery-winning book, and the movie looks adorable - Matthew Broderick's voice and those enormous ears! I'm completely sold.

The movie website includes a video trailer plus lots of fun games, activities and a downloadable Teaching Guide PDF for the book.

For more teaching resources for author Kate DiCamillo, take a look at this Scholastic Author Study. And for a taste of the book being read aloud, here is an audiobook excerpt.
