Thirteen Red Shoes Review

Thirteen Red Shoes is a lovely blog by a Mom in Australia. Her images, content, and commentary encourage me to slow down and appreciate what is going on. She has great advice about children’s books, web sites, and projects. Thank you so much for the review.

Kids Film from Around the World

Sometimes I wish I lived in NYC, especially when I read about New York’s International Children’s Film Festival in the New York Times. But luckily for those of us who live elsewhere the festival not only offers film recommendations, but they also feature a bunch of films you can watch online. They do also have touring compilations that get shown in other cities. Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts will be hosting screenings in April. It’s inspiring to see children’s films from around the world. It always has a big impact on both me and my kids.
