We asked you to tell us what to write. Today, we present the beginnings of a kids' films library, with the 50 best family films by our critics, plus Michael Hann's own top choices
Gallery: our choice of the top 50 kids films
Why isn't there a recommended library of films for children, was the question @AdvancedDriver posed when we asked you to suggest the articles you wanted to read. "The recommendations should be thought-provoking and/or entertaining," @AdvancedDriver requested, though experience of sitting my pair in front of a movie suggests that if it's not entertaining, then no thoughts will be provoked. Now, this is a subject on which we're going to need your help, so while I'll start the ball rolling with some films that have worked in my home, please let me know the films that have captivated your kids. Surprising and unusual nominations will be especially welcomed, and »
