Action!: How Movies Began by Meghan McCarthy

Movies take us on adventures, introduce us to new worlds, and make us feel, but how did they start?

In an easy-to-follow narrative voice, this fact-filled picture book tells the story of the evolution of movies and the people who worked hard to create them--both on-screen and behind the scenes. In fascinating detail, it shows how early photography capturing motion became silent films, which led to the first color films and how those building blocks allowed for the inspiring movies of today.
