Disney•Pixar’s INCREDIBLES 2 - New Teaser Trailer & Poster Now Available! #Incredibles2

Disney•Pixar’s INCREDIBLES 2 opens in theatres everywhere June 15th, 2018!

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

WONDER - Movie Review! #ChooseKind #WonderTheMovie

About the movie WONDER:
In WONDER, August "Auggie" Pullman (Jacob Tremblay) is about to start fifth grade -- marking his first time at a school with other kids, rather than learning at home from his mom, Isabel (Julia Roberts). That would be plenty nerve-wracking on its own, but Auggie has more to worry about than the average new middle schooler: Born with a genetic abnormality, he has a significant facial difference. Twenty-plus surgeries in his short life have left him able to hear, see, and speak like other kids, but he definitely doesn't look like them. And since he can't wear his beloved astronaut helmet all day at school, he has to face them all in person. It's far from easy; kids call him names ("Darth Hideous," "Gollum") and bully him, and even his parents can't talk away the hurt. But Auggie isn't the only one facing challenges: His older sister, Via (Izabela Vidovic), feels like their parents (Isabel and Nate, played by Owen Wilson) barely pay attention to her because Auggie needs so much from them. His new friend, Jack Will (Noah Jupe), genuinely likes Auggie but doesn't know how to speak up for him in school. Via's former best friend, Miranda (Danielle Rose Russell), seems tough on the outside but is grappling with difficult family issues. And even bully Julian (Bryce Gheisar) has his own problems. As Auggie navigates his first year of school, he -- and all the people around him -- learn to think more of others and find happiness inside themselves.

My Review:
This is one of the best movies I've ever seen! Bring the tissues. It's for everyone of all ages. It's rated PG, but really could have been rated G. Please go see it. Please take your children ages five and up to go see it with you. Then make sure you talk to your children about bullying. Wonder has a great message to except everyone for who they are, and not what they look like. Ask your children if someone is bullying or teasing them. This movie helps to open up some great conversation between parents and children.

This movie hit close to home because my ten year old son Matthew, has high functioning Asperger's Syndrome. He is made fun of at school because he's a little slow, has trouble with his fine motor skills, daydreams, takes more of his teacher's attention then the other children and more. I get emails everyday from his teachers telling me throughout every school day how well he's doing, or how bad he's doing. Or asking me to come to the school to try to talk him into doing his classwork or to take a test. I feel heartbroken for him most days. I have to push myself to push him. If I didn't stand up for him and push him to do his school work and tests, he wouldn't be in fourth grade right now. Who would have known that fourth grade would be the hardest for him, and for me? Now after watching "Wonder," I am worried about him next year in fifth grade, and in middle school. My heart hearts for my son and other children who feel, act and look differently.

Wonder is like no movie you've ever seen. It's about the relationships between parents and children with special needs and differences. It's also about the relationship between mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, husbands and wives. But most of all, it's about how hard children can be on one another, and about how some parents teach their children to act differently towards children with differences. I saw this when one of the boys in this movie edited out Auggie from the class photo because she didn't want her friends to ask her questions about Auggie. She wanted her friends to see her son, and not Auggie. Therefore, she was teaching her son that it was ok to treat Auggie differently and in return, her son was bullying Auggie.

"You can't blend in, when you were born to stand out."

Museum of the Bible Tour! Review & Children's Book #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 11/26

Children of the World Storybook Bible (hardcover; ages 5 to 8; 256 pgs): A unique storybook Bible that pairs one hundred best-loved Bible stories with artwork from children in over sixty countries around the world.

My review of the "Children of the World Storybook Bible"
I love this book! It explains the story of the bible really simple. I can't wait to read this to my children and share with them the stories in the bible. Every family should own a copy so that they can share the stories in the bible with one another. This book says for children 5 to 8 years old, but I feel it's for birth to 10 years old or more. Anyone who wants to read the bible in easy to read stories, this is for you!

What’s the Bible All About? (board book; ages 2 to 5): This powerful introduction gives young children a “big picture” understanding of the Bible—from what it is, to how it was written, to the stories it tells.

My review of "What's the Bible All About?"
This board book starts out explaining that "The bible is a collection of stories, songs, and poems about God. The bible is also filled with stories of kings and queens, heroes and troublemakers." Which does explain some of what the bible is about! This cute board book tells children what the bible is about and what kinds of stories are inside it.

Wild and Wacky Things in the Bible (paperback; ages 6 to 9; 160 pgs): This book explores the story behind weird and wacky Bible happenings with intriguing facts and bold artwork.

My review of "Wild and Wacky Things in the Bible: Fun and Important Stories to Know!"
Some of the facts in this book are facts that you can find most anywhere, and have nothing to do with the bible, such as "A housefly poops almost every time it lands." There is some crazy things about creation, food, diseases, animals, strange sightings of God and other things in the bible. There's even a 90 year old woman who had a baby, her name was Sarah! Could you imagine being that old and giving birth? No thank you!

That’s So Weird! (paperback; ages 5 to 8; 112 pgs): Geared to emerging readers, this fun and fascinating book of trivia teaches young children about the whose, whats, and whys of the Bible with a colorful, graphic feel.

My review of "That's So Weird!: 100 Fun and Fascinating Facts about the Bible"
The first fact or trivia in this book says "People say money doesn't grow in trees, but did you know money was once found inside a fish? Jesus told Peter to pay his taxes by catching a fish and then pulling a coin out of it's mouth!" (Matthew 17:26-27) Could you imagine catching a fish and finding money inside of it?! How amazing is that!

Once more interesting fact in this book and about the bible is: "There are three men in the bible named Dodo. But the name doesn't refer to the extinct bird - the word dodo in Hebrew means "his beloved" or "uncle." (Judges 10:1; 2 Samuel 23:9; 1 Chronicles 11:26)


Enter below to Win a copy of ONE of the books posted above, of your choice! Giveaway is open to residents in the main 48 continental United States only, 18 years of age or older. No P.O. Boxes, sorry. Giveaway ends on 11/26/17.

Disclosure: I received one copy of all four of the books above in exchange for my post. No other compensation was exchanged or received.
