It adds a touch of magic for children when they find out that all their favorite characters can’t wait for Christmas day to come along. They are planning lots of surprises including an amazing gift exchange (which you know has got to include honey)! This book is perfect as part of any holiday celebration because even though there are some sad moments in this tale, it always ends up happy!
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain – Part One
Henry David Thoreau said, “Mark Twain is a great artist, and I don’t say that as one who merely feels the book in question to be pleasant reading.” The Adventures of Tom Sawyer tells the story of an adventurous young lad from his childhood days when all he has for entertainment are some friends and games. But once they find out about treasure hidden by their deceased friend’s father, things change forever.

This film was created in 1987 but still remains popular today – so watch with your kids at home! It stars special effects master Stan Winston as Dr. Howard Atherton, Dean Cundey as the cinematographer, and Dom DeLuise who voices “The Monster” in this children’s movie.
It is a show that teaches kids lessons about life through the adventures of Muppets like Big Bird and Elmo. Besides teaching us how to count from one to ten with catchy tunes, Sesame Street has been honored by both Emmys and Grammys for its positive impact on young viewers. It was even inducted into the Television Hall of Fame!
Green Eggs And Ham (by Dr. Seuss)
This book tells an argument between Sam-I-am and his friend about whether or not green eggs are good enough to eat; but it all works out in the end.
Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing
This book is about the trials and tribulations that happen to Fudge, his brother Pete’s, friends’ family when their mother goes back to work after staying at home with them for many years. It teaches readers there are consequences for being an absent parent as well as a responsible one!
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (translated from French) This beautiful story tells the tale of a little prince who leaves his planet in search of wisdom and love and meets all sorts of bizarre characters along the way. The moral lesson behind this children’s classic can be summed up into three words: “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
The Lion King
Every time I hear, “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” this song from The Lion King it brings me back to my childhood and how excited I was for the movie. This Disney film tells a coming-of-age story about Simba who learns he’s going to be king of his homeland Pride Rock but first must fight with Scar who has taken over as ruler by killing their father Mufasa. It’s an epic tale that teaches children and adults alike important lessons like letting go of past trauma, accepting responsibility and forgiveness. All in all, it’s one of my favorite movies!
