It's the Christmas season. Widowed Paul Stevenson and his two daughters, fifteen year old Esther Stevenson and ten year old Kassie Stevenson, have just moved to the winter resort town of Heber Valley, Utah, where Paul will be the general manager of the Heber Valley Bank. Kassie in particular is afraid she won't make friends, especially since her school doesn't have a music program. Music and singing is one of her passions, one of the ways she stays connected to the memory of her musician mother. Kassie stumbles upon an injured and abandoned German Shepard, who, with Esther's help, nurses him back to health while hiding the fact of who they eventually name Scoot from their father, who they believe will not let them keep him. But upon finding out about him, Paul does allow them to keep Scoot, who Kassie considers her first real friend in Heber Valley. Kassie is eventually able to use music in the form of the children's choir at the local church to find her place in town. She and the ...Written by
When Kassie enters the church for the first time, Pastor Bailey is giving a sermon while the adult choir sings in the background. When the choir is shown by itself, they are indeed singing the music that is heard, but when the choir is shown in the background with Pastor Bailey giving the sermon in the foreground, the choir members are not mouthing the words to the song being sung.

I didn't expect much, just a children's movie. I have to admit part of the reason I watched it is my dog's name is Scooter, and the dog in the movie is named Scoot. You get the idea the dog goes through a lot but (good for the little kids) there are no bleeding wounds or anything. The kids are good actors for their age. The criminals are sinister without being too scary. I got a "christmasy" feel from it that families would enjoy even with smaller toddlers, while the older kids may sneer at some aspects, it is geared for all ages. It has the good ending that you want even with a little twist. The dog is a good actor, and I hope he got a big bone for his role. My nieces and nephews all have kids of their own these days and I would recommend this for a holiday family night.
