Great family movie retelling classic stories.
The film features many of today's notable Black entertainers. My girls (4 & 7 y.o.) are loving it. It is a great way to keep these traditional stories alive. It is also a good way to teach children about contrasting mediums (film vs. writing). You may be also get them to read the stories in various editions. The songs are great! They too are part of the Black cultural traditions. The film does a good job of presenting both sides of morality, that someone can do good and bad things. I am thoroughly enjoying myself watching the film with my children. It retells the stories I know plus many I don't. Great for the whole family.
