In the movie and the book they had the same types of lessons learned. The difference is that in the movie Scrooge had a dog while in the book, it never mentions that Scrooge had a dog. Another difference is that in the Christmas Carol movie they sang while in the book they never sang.

Scrooge is visited by the same three spirits in the movie and book. You can’t forget that runs a business in both the movie and the book.
Scrooge And The Grinch, There Is Always Hope. The act of selfishness has always had the ability to take over a someone’s.
