A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
The stories offer kids positive, upbeat messges.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that these stories vary in quality, and that one of the "Snow Cat," is rather spooky and might frighten some kids. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
This is a fine collection, with a great variety of styles of storytelling and animation, making it interesting for kids and their parents as well. The "Waiting for Wings" song isn't exceptional, and many parents will wonder why the dancers in "Come On, Rain!" don't have shoes on -- after all, it takes place in the city. "Snow Cat" begins and ends with a cheery grandmother and granddaughter, but the story in between is somewhat spooky and very dark (the animation is colored lines on a black background), and some kids might get upset when the cat melts.
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.
