When you go to watch a film with your little ones and they can't keep their eyes off the screen, and they sing and dance throughout the whole show you must give it a 10! The plot is simple and unpretentious which makes it easy for the kids to follow. The movie is inspired by a popular Spanish children's song but global audiences can relate to the characters and core messages of the film.
