“A lovely animated film… sweet and full of lessons… it’s also funny and entertaining for both parents and kids.” –Common Sense Media
It’s getting closer to winter (and the holidays – yeah!) and my girls think they love snow. I say ‘think’ because it’s never actually snowed in Austin since they were born with the exception of a few brief flurries when Brooke was just a few months old. They have this magical idea about the cold, wet stuff so I knew they would be excited about the new animated movie Snowtime! The girls both loved the movie, which ramped up their admiration of SNOW, and it’s an action-packed tale about having fun snowball fights that then turn serious during the main characters winter break from school. The movie has a lot of heart and deals with subjects like conflict and friendship. If you are looking for a holiday movie for your child’s upcoming school breaks, definitely add Snowtime! to the list.
