Cute movie with tough lessons

Not bad my 5 and 9 year old grandchildren were entertained by it. It teaches about possible loss and how scary that can be it also teaches about love and the importance of family. Overall a cute lil movie. My 9-year old said I think that was a good movie the 5-year old didn’t say anything one way or the other.
