The Book Thief Coming to DVD and Blu-ray March 11th (plus Giveaway)

~This Giveaway Is Now Closed~


I am sharing this information as a member of the Fox Home ENT Insiders Blogging Program. I will receive a free Blu-ray copy of The Book Thief movie mentioned below. No other compensation was received for this post. All opinions expressed are my own. 




Coming to DVD and Blu-ray March 11, 2014
Based on the beloved best-selling book comes an “extremely moving” (Leonard Maltin, Indiewire) story of a girl who transforms the lives of those around her during World War II, Germany. When her mother can no longer care for her, Liesel (Sophie NĂ©lisse) is adopted by a German couple (OSCAR® Winner Geoffrey Rush* and OSCAR® Nominee Emily Watson**). Although she arrives illiterate, Liesel is encouraged to learn to read by her adoptive father. When the couple then takes in Max (Ben Schnetzer), a Jew hiding from Hitler’s army, Liesel befriends him. Ultimately, words and imagination provide the friends with an escape from the events unfolding around them in this extraordinary, acclaimed film directed by Brian Percival (Downton Abbey).

For a long time, I have been hearing so many rave reviews about this story. Although I have not yet had the chance to read the book, I do own a copy and have always planned on reading it. I'm so excited to see this film and then follow up by reading the book.

Here's a discussion guide that I'm sure will be a terrific companion to The Book Thief. You're invited to click on each image and print them out for your own personal use.

After you check out the discussion guide, be sure and enter the giveaway at the end of this post. One lucky reader will win a Blu-ray copy of The Book Thief.

Yes, I read The Book Thief. It is an amazing story! I would share this with my kids because I know my son won't read the book and my daughter is in college so she has no free time for "fun" reading!
