Transcript of How The Grinch Stole Christmas

The Grinch is only in black and white in the book but in the movie he is green.
The Who's in the book all look very similar but the Who's in the movie each look different in their own way.
In the book, only the female Who's have unique hair or things on the top of their head. However, in the movie all of the Who's have unique hair or things on top of their head.
Plot Differences
The movie followed along with the book for the most part. At times, the movie would skip pages in the book but would later go back to the pages. Overall, the movie followed what was in the book and the movie wasn't completely different than the book. Some of the pages in the book were not mentioned in the movie word for word but it allowed for the audience to still know what was going on.

Book vs. Movie
Place/Time Differences
The movie had extended some of the scenes in the book by adding humorous parts. The humor was added to the Grinch and this allowed for the audience to get a different perspective of the Grinch. The book didn't showcase many details so the movie just added things to the scenes so that the audience can feel like they are actually in Who-ville as well as in the Grinch's lair.
Things Left Out Of The Movie
Things Added To The Movie
Opinion Of The Book
And Movie
I grew up reading Dr. Seuss books and How The Grinch Stole Christmas has been one of my all time favorite books. Reading the book gives the reader a broad perspective of how the Grinch stole Christmas without using a lot of details. Even though I love the book, I love the movie even more. The details added to the movie lets the audience get lost in the wonderful world of Who-ville and as the audience you almost feel like the Grinch stole your Christmas. like many children, I know many lines from the movie/book and you are never too old for How The Grinch Stole Christmas!!!
Incorporating Into
My Classroom
The book and movie for How The Grinch Stole Christmas can be a great classroom tool. The book and movie can be used to let students compare and contrast the two. Doing this will let them see how much the book and movie are the same but also how they are different. In my classroom, I can first read the book to the students then tell them to pay attention to similarities and differences as they watch the movie. The students can then complete an activity by making a Grinch face and then attach a explanation of why the book and movie are different. Another activity can be to have the students answer questions about both the book and movie. I will definitely use both the book and the movie in my classroom.
Character Differences
The very beginning of the movie had a little dialogue before starting where the book started.
The movie had kids go to see the Grinch's lair.
The movie showed the inside of the Grinch's lair (the book did not).
The movie did a flashback showing the Grinch as a child and how he was picked on for looking different.
There was a christmas light competition between Martha May Whovier and Betty Lou Who.
Cindy Lou Who went to the Grinch's lair to invite him to the Holiday Cheermeister.
The chair of cheer was used to carry the Grinch at the Holiday Cheermeister celebration.
The Grinch burned down the town's Christmas tree.
"You're A Mean One,

A few parts from the book were not mentioned in order.
