A Series of Unfortunate Events- Netflix Series Read Along
Last weekend Mia finished watching A Series of Unfortunate Events original series on Netflix, just after reading The Miserable Mill the book 4 in the A Series of Unfortunate Events book series.Mia was a slow reader for a while a couple of years but now is flying after being put on a school reading program.She really enjoyed both the Netflix original series and reading the books with the streaming series as it allowed her see how someone else would the book characters to be like.Now she’s in a bit of a grump that it’s all ended for now and is wanting to find out what happens to Violet, Klaus and Sunny.How many more disguises will Count Olaf use? Will he get the children’s inheritance? And what really did happen to the children’s parents?
The Benefits Of Reading Books That Have Been Reproduced For Television And Film
Seeing Mia enthralled with both the Netflix Series and the A Series of Unfortunate Events books, takes me back to my reading habits back in the 80’s, where as a child I was an avid watcher of The Famous Five television series.From watching the weekly series, I went on to read the book series by Enid Blyton many times over and a few of Enid Blyton’s The Secret Seven books too.The television series not only encouraged me to read the books but for me and my best friend (30 years strong) to act out what we read and saw.We had many of our own adventures with our dogs on walks in our local woods.Even though the words and scenes weren’t always the same on the television series, it still instilled excitement in me to read to the end of the book.And the same can be said today, although I have made more of an effort to read the book first before watching the televised or film version, there has always been a pull to read and watch both versions.There are always hidden extras in reading the book I find.You find yourself asking questions about the characters, imagining how they would act and how the story unfolds as you read the words and use your imagination to recreate the scenes.
With the kids at their dad's yesterday and we were all at my mum's today, we're only just now settling down to watch the new @netflixuk original series of A Series Of Unfortunate Events.Youngest has her copy of The Bad Beginning from @EgmontUK to read along, whilst the shows stream. #ASOUE #ASOUEbooks #asouenetflix #asouereadathon #asouefandom #snaphappybritmums #epig
The reading experience of A Series of Unfortunate Events.
The A Series of Unfortunate Events books have a narrative theme running through them, that repeatedly warns the reader how disturbing the story they reading is.It’s the warnings of what they are about to read that compels the reader to carry on.Count Olaf’s disguises throughout each book and situations that the children are thrown into, entice them to read on to see how they over throw the situations presented to them.Mia now wants to read the books again before binge watching the Netflix series one more time.
You can purchase the whole series of A Series of Unfortunate Events from Egmont Publishing . Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events season one (Books 1-4: The Bad Beginning, The Wide Window, The Reptile Room and The Miserable Mill) is now available on Netflix.
