Having the pleasure of choosing movies for our monthly Family Movie Night has given me the chance to get better acquainted with our great children’s film collection. Tonight we’ll be playing Happy Feet at 7 p.m., so come out and join us! If you can’t make it this month, on December 14 we will be showing the wintry comedy classic, Home Alone. What about the new movies, you ask? Well, here’s a preview of what’s just arrived here at the library!
The Swan princess = La Princesse des cygnes
A power hungry sorcerer transforms a princess into a swan by day in this tale of everlasting love.
The story of the March family of four daughters and Marmee who, because her husband is away serving in the Army during the Civil War, must raise her “little women” on her own. The daughters include: spirited Jo who longs for a career as a writer; beautiful and conservative older sister Meg; fragile Beth; and the romantic Amy. Through the years, as they become women, the sisters share their most cherished and painful moments of self-discovery as Marmee and Aunt March guide them through questions of independence, romance and virtue.
The mini witch = La Mini sorcière
Fuchsia is finally old enough to go to witches’ school, and after befriending a human boy and learning of his uncle’s plans to destroy her school, she must use her new magical powers to save it.
Angels in the outfield
When a boy prays for a chance to have a family if the California Angels win the pennant, angels are assigned to make that possible.
