Is It Any Good?
For older kids and teens, this feel-good film is an inspiring teaching tool about the gift of gratitude. "Scientific experiments have actually shown that people who cultivate gratitude do actually become happier," says author and researcher Rupert Sheldrake in Gratitude Revealed. A similar sentiment is shared by kid Billie Riess, who adds that "it feels better to do a generous act than to receive a generous act. It means a lot to me when I see someone smile or say thank you because you know that you've accomplished something good. And there's such a thing as karma, and karma comes back to you."
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
