Grand Daughter loved it.
16 March 2010 | by ednbecSee all my reviews

Our 5 year old received this movie by chance and watched it 4 times the first evening. I'm sure it will remain in her movie rotation for years to come. Acting is on a child's level. Characters are believable through a child's eyes. The story flows through pulling memories out of a keepsake and fills in questions as to how this came to be, again making this story believable. Although fear of the unknown is a central theme, children following the storyline see early on that it is unfounded. Adults admitting mistakes in first impressions, then correcting themselves. It's alright to be wrong as long as you own up to it when you discover the truth. Both sides of the story learned valuable lessons about trust. All good life lessons.
