great family movie
1 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a teacher and I used to show this to my fifth graders each year on the day before Thanksgiving. In this day and age of jaded and streetwise young people it was so refreshing to watch their interest and caring rise to the surface as they viewed the movie. Unfortunately, I loaned it to someone and it disappeared. I cannot find where I can buy a copy. I have been looking for years. If you know of a way I would very much appreciate the information.

I loved this movie because of the messages it gives and the opportunities for discussion and writing activities which always followed the viewing.

I really miss not having this movie to show my students.
