horton


Saw it! Loved it! You should see it! It should be shown to every child! And all of their parents! It has such a great message!

OK, some might find it a little heavy-handed, but in this age of cyber-bullying it really shows kids how important it is to stand up for what you know to be the truth. The crowd it a little frightening, and the mom-kangaroo is nasty (Yaya hid her eyes every time the kangaroo showed up on screen.)

Is it OK to believe in something you can't see? Do we need proof of it's existence before we allow ourselves to trust and believe? Very interesting that this story was released just before Easter...

I always resist 're-makes' (I still won't watch the 'new' grinch! boo!) ;) But I might break down for this one...

You're so lucky you still have little ones - I had to suffer through Drillbit Taylor this weekend. Don't rush out to see it.

Thanks for the review - maybe I'll take Kaden to it when I'm in the Midge in a couple weeks to babysit him for the week :)

We took the kids to see this move last week. We all loved it!
The kids have spent the weekend saying "Warrior poet"

I love the theme of that movie. Did it raise any discussions with the Littles?

Was Carol Burnette the voice of the kangaroo? I love her, big time.
