Grow with The Odd Life of Timothy Green (DVD Review)

        I was extremely excited to have the opportunity to recently review The Odd Life of Timothy Green!  Alana and I had already discussed renting it once it came out.  The Odd Life of Timothy Green became available on Blu-rayTM Combo Pack, DVD, High Definition Digital and On-Demand platforms on December 4, 2012.  I cannot even begin to tell you what an adorable and all around family movie this is.  Dane actually watched it first and about half way through came out telling us "it is just the cutest movie ever!"  He then came out a short while after sniffling because he said there was a sad part but he still really loved it.

        The synopsis says "From Academy Award-nominated writer/director Peter Hedges (Dan in Real Life, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape), and starring Golden Globe® winner Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton, Oscar® winner Dianne Wiest and CJ Adams as Timothy Green, comes this highly imaginative story about a happily married couple who can’t wait to start a family but can only dream about what their child would be like. Then one stormy night young Timothy shows up on their doorstep. Soon they and the small town in which they live learn that sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life’s greatest gifts."

        The next evening we all watched this as a family.  It had the attention of all three children and we all laughed and cried together!  This is definitely a touching story for all ages with some great life lessons.

        This time of year is all about telling loved ones how much they mean to us and counting our blessings. Share this message with your children this weekend with crafts that are designed to help facilitate conversations about who and what we are thankful for.  An easy to assemble Blessings Box made of cut paper and filled with a chocolate is a sweet way to express how much and why you appreciate a special person in your lives, making a great holiday gift kids can make for a coach, teacher or friend. Printable Wish Leaves help kids describe the kind of person they wish to be and can be used as a decorative reminder of their goals. During the holiday season, giving thanks is an important message and Leaf Behinds help kids give the gift of "Thanks" when they want to convey gratitude of good wishes to someone who has made a difference in their lives.
