Amazon Prime Movies and TV Based on Children’s Books

Following up on my list of Netflix movies based on children’s books, this time around I’ll be sharing some of my favorite movies and series based on children’s literature that are available to stream on Amazon Prime Video. Prime Video is a streaming service available exclusively to Amazon Prime members. They feature a selection of popular movies and shows and in the last couple of years they have begun developing their own original programming as well.
