I am a kid at heart. I have cared for children. I am expecting at the moment and thinking of all the lessons I must teach my precious flower before they have to enter the real world. I am a children's book author and I loved this movie. The themes and messages in this movie are very real ones - dealing with loss, grief, anger, and emotions, in general, is such a difficult thing for a person let alone a child. Giving them a lesson such as this movie which shows them: their actions have consequences, they are not alone in their pain, they have to make right the things they do wrong, and that you have to look for the light that surrounds the darkness, to believe in yourself when you feel no one else will. Yes, this show has a heavy theme - but it's all done in cute ways with comedic relief and vibrant colors. It's all so important for children to learn and if it scares your kids or if it makes them cry, then here is a perfect opportunity. Use it to open a conversation with your child about the realities of the world in a way that helps them to understand. It doesn't diminish their childhood to learn about life but in fact, makes them better for it. That's my two cents anyway. I cried. I loved it. I will definitely let my baby watch it. And it will be splendiferous.
