Here is a list of all the movies based on books that you might have or should have read while in the fourth grade. Some of these films are based on classic literature like James and the Giant Peach and How to Eat Fried Worms, while others, such as Shiloh, are successful movies adapted from fairly new books. All of these films and stories deal with subjects and themes appropriate for 9-10 year old audiences, and many feature young protagonists dealing with elementary school, whether in ordinary or extraordinary circumstances. Use this list to take a trip down memory lane to junior high or middle school or to look for movies you can use as a CliffsNotes substitute (we've all been there).
