Disney's Frozen 2 Is In The Works!

Winter weather ahead! Frozen 2 is officially in development at Walt Disney Animation Studios with directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee and producer Peter Del Vecho, the Oscar®-winning filmmaking team behind Frozen.

The news was announced at Disney’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders this morning by Bob Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company; John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios; and actor Josh Gad, who provides the voice of Olaf from Frozen.

“We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in that world with those characters,” said John Lasseter. “Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have come up with a great idea for a sequel and you will be hearing a lot more about it and we’re taking you back to Arendelle. We are so excited about that.”

A release date and production details are yet to be announced.

The Patchwork Torah - Children's Book #Review!

The Patchwork Torah was written by Allison Ofanansky.
The Patchwork Torah was winner of the 2014 National Jewish Book Award! 

Information about the book:
As a child, David watches his grandfather, a Torah scribe or sofer, finish a Torah scroll for the synagogue. "A Torah is not something to be thrown away," his Grandfather explains in The Patchwork Torah. David's grandfather carefully stores the old Torah where his new one used to be in his cabinet. As David's grandfather is hoping to one day repair the letters so the Torah can be used again.

David grows up and becomes a sofer just like his grandfather. Through the years, people bring him damaged Torahs they have saved from danger and disaster - one damaged by Nazi soldiers during World War II, one damaged in a fire in a synagogue and one in flooding during Hurricane Katrina. David stores each of these precious Torahs in his cabinet, until his granddaughter Leah gives him the idea to make a recycled Torah from the salvaged Torah scrolls.

My Review:
I know a little bit about the Jewish religion and heritage. But I had no idea the significance of Torah, or that Jewish people danced with it! So exciting! Sounds like fun to me! I also think that it's super awesome that the letters and words on the Torah are written in Hebrew. David the boy in the story's grandfather taught him how to sharpen the quills and how to use them to write Hebrew letters on a scrap of paper.

The Patchwork Torah explains about the war with the Nazi's and a little about the Holocaust, how Jewish people had to hide themselves and how each Torah had it's own story and history. The last Torah in the story comes from Hurricane Katrina. Which helps to tie the past stories of the book into the present.

About the Author
Allison Ofanandky was born in the United States, and now lives in the village of Kaditah, Israel near the mystical city of Tzfat, with her husband and daughter. They enjoy hiking the hills of the Galilee and gathering and eating the fruits that grow there. They are involved in many environmental and eco-peace projects. Allison is the author of Kar-Ben's "Nature in Israel Holiday Series" that includes "Harvest of Light," "Sukkot Treasure Hunt," "What's the Buzz: Honey for a Sweet New Year" and "Cheesecake for Shavuot."

About the Illustrator
Elsa Oriol completed her studies in Graphic Arts, Interiors Architecture and Decorative Painting in France. After working as an interiors architect, she now dedicates her time to painting and illustration. She works in acrylics and gouache.

From the Jewish Book World - "Through its serene, oil, painted illustrations and warm language, The Patchwork Torah demonstrates the importance of cycles in Judaism - the cycle of the reading of the Torah ending and beginning on the holiday of Simchat Torah, the cycle of the generations and re-cycling."

Publisher's Weekly - "Surprisingly inventive and genuinely uplifting, this story beautifully and subtly ties together two key Jewish precepts: l'dor v'dor (generation to generation) and tikkum olam (repair the world)."

Disney/Pixar’s "INSIDE OUT" Movie Trailer! #InsideOut

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus Travel Pack Giveaway! (U.S./CAN) Ends 3/20

Spring is finally here, and I'm teaming up with Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus to share five travel hacks that you'll love, along with a great giveaway offer. One lucky winner will take home a Travel Pack from Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus valued at $150 (including a $50 Target gift card!)

Five travel hacks you'll love (especially #2) - and a giveaway!

Five Travel Hacks You'll Love
1. Roll; Don't Fold
As you pack, roll your clothes instead of folding them. You'll be able to fit up to two times the amount of clothing by rolling them as you would by folding them.

2. Pack your "Iron"
And by iron, we mean Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus. The 3 oz travel size meets airline standards. Slip it into your carry-on bag, and with a simple spray, you'll be wrinkle free all trip long. (It's also a great fabric refresher if you have to wear your clothes more than once on vacation.) Click here to read more and grab a coupon.

3. Bring an Empty Water Bottle
After you get through security, several airports have filtered water stands to fill your bottle. You'll also find that most airport cafes will gladly fill your water bottle as well.

4. Snap a Picture
If you're checking your luggage, snap a picture of your suitcase contents before you leave the house. If the airline loses your luggage, you'll be able to use the picture to prove the value of the contents.

5. BYO Blanket
Blankets on airlines are hard to come by these days - and they're not always washed between flights. If you tend to get cold on planes, or you're going to be flying overnight, pack your own blanket to stay comfortable.

Enter to Win a Travel Pack from Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus!

One lucky winner will receive a travel pack valued at $150, including a travel tote, a Tervis Tumbler, Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus and a $50 Target gift card.

Giveaway ends at midnight on Friday, March 20, 2015. Open to US and Canada.
