Tales of Beatrix Potter is a series of her stories performed by the Royal Ballet. The costuming, sets, music, and choreography are just lovely. The boys enjoyed looking through our set of Beatrix Potter books and finding the corresponding story while watching. This is an excellent introduction to ballet for young children. Highly recommended. We borrowed the DVD through Netflix, but I think we may have to purchase our own copy. Hmm. Maybe the newest member of the family needs an Amazon wish list... I think I'll set that up today.
When Luke was born and Levi was only two, Aunt Shannon bought Levi-the-horse-obsessed-child the movie version (1961) of Marguerite Henry's Misty of Chincoteague. Misty soon became an oft-watched movie in our house. The VHS tape suffered from use, and we no longer have a VCR, so I was thrilled to find the DVD at the library. LOVE the family values as played out in this movie with the grandparent/grandchild and brother/sister relationships.
