"No More Baths"
10 April 2011 | by conniechisSee all my reviews

It is a great movie. It teaches children that you can fight for what you believe in and help a friend in need. It had a problem that affected an elderly man and his property that a builder wanted to invest in to generate a lot of money. The children knew what was happening to him was wrong and so they all came up with a solution to solve that problem. It is a great movie to use to teach young children that they can do anything to help a friend in need. It teaches value, integrity, and friendship, and more.

What I liked about this movie is that the older gentleman, Jake, had such a love for the children and looked forward to seeing them cross his lot to go to school in the morning. When one of the children got hurt on his land,the city gated up the path so they could not walk through to go to school. Jake was so disappointed when this happened it made you feel very sad about this situation. A little later he got arrested because of some exaggerated tax increase on his property which he could not pay. I will let you watch the movie to see what happens when the children took a stand.
