Children’s Book Review – The Acorn People (1976)

The Acorn People is a very short, deeply memorable book everyone should read. At 80 pages, it tells an unsentimental, yet profoundly moving tale about one camp counselor’s experience at summer camp in the 1970s. His kids were all severely disabled. And all dying. Disabled and dying children, but still important. Modern movies like Sea […]

Children’s Book Review – The Mouse and the Motorcycle (1965, by Beverly Cleary)

Short, sweet, and oh so much fun, you will believe a mouse can ride a motorcycle! This is the lovely tale of Ralph, a young mouse addicted to the speed and thrill of cycling, and his friendship with a boy who loves miniature race cars. They understand each other through their mutual love of motorcycles. […]

Movie Review – Spirit Untamed

Spirit Untamed was exactly what we were all looking for. On the opening show we — myself, Runpee Mom, my daughter, and my granddaughter — went to see Spirit on the big screen. All four of us have seen every episode numerous times, due to the fact that my granddaughter worships horses and loves Spirit. […]

Children’s Book Review: Harry Cat’s Pet Puppy – A Cricket in Times Square novel

I’ve been really enjoying a re-read of many favorite childhood novels — in some cases a first-time read. Such is the case with Harry Cat’s Pet Puppy (1974), the third book in a series that began with the classic The Cricket in Times Square. As a kid, I adored the Cricket story and never knew […]

Movie Review – The Secret Garden (2020)

I’m a huge Secret Garden fan and have been since a wonderful teacher read it chapter by chapter to my rapt class in the 4th grade. It’s on my top ten list of favorite children’s books, and will be getting a reread review this year as I work through my stack of morning yoga reads. […]

Children’s Book Review – Tucker’s Countryside (A sequel to The Cricket in Times Square)

Tucker in Tucker’s Countryside (1969) is the mouse from the extraordinary and renowned children’s book The Cricket in Times Square. Here the mouse gets his own heroic tail. Or, er…tale. In Cricket — the origin novel (and animated children’s special) — small and lonely Chester Cricket gets accidentally trapped in the New York Square Subway […]

Sundance Festival Movie Review – Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street

If you are a fan of recent films Won’t You Be My Neighbor? and A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, this is the documentary you must see this year. This is a film that is nostalgic and fun, sure, but it’s also an eye-opening look at the history of children’s television.  When you get a […]

Children’s Book Review – Bunnicula

I’ve been doing a little light yoga reading routine each morning. I put my legs in the air for 10 minutes, before I even get out of bed, to take me from sleepy to wakey in a gentler fashion. Hey, it’s Doctor Approved! I decided to take this daily time to read through some kiddie […]

Movie Rewatch Review – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

My favorite of all the Harry Potter films — and books for that matter — this is just an A+ good time. If you like a quest-type adventure story, Goblet of Fire is a fine addition to the ranks of high fantasy. Unfortunately, I can’t speak for how well this tale holds together if you […]

soul by pixar

Movie Review – Soul (Pixar and Disney get it right, again)

Soul is one of those films where you see a still or a short clip and you think “Aha! A children’s film; something to keep the little crotch goblins quiet for a bit.” Then you notice the Disney and Pixar names plastered all over it and, that’s it… it’s a kid’s film. But then something starts […]
