The Little Prince
Earlier this month Netflix welcomed The Little Prince to streaming. This new adaptation is creative in ways different than any movie before. The introduction of two new characters who help tell The Little Prince’s story of innocence adds a new layer to the already beautiful story. My son Spencer enjoyed the movie so much he chose the book, by Antoine de-Saint Exupery, as his first reading credit in 3rd grade. A story about the eventuality of conformity and loving a difficult person has more life lessons than you can imagine.
Rediscover one of the most beloved stories of all time. At the heart of it all is a Little Girl whose mother is preparing her for the world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator. The Aviator introduces The Little Girl to his new friend The Little Prince, and a world where anything is possible. The film features Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, Benicio Del Toro, Ricky Gervais, Paul Rudd, Paul Giamatti and Albert Brooks.
Sit down as a family and watch this colorful new movie, I dare you not to cry. I think I cried 4 or 5 times throughout the entire movie. Even my husband and our 11 year old took time to watch The Little Prince.
If you’d like a few other recommendations for children’s programming here you go:
With a little help from rock legends, five friendly bugs learn big lessons about the world around them — all from the safety of their own backyard. Aloe Blacc, Robbie Williams and Frances and The Lumineers will all introduce Beatles classics to the children with their own unique style.
My children aren’t at the age to watch Beat Bugs so I’m quite disappointed. My friend Gina tells me it is fantastic and her daughter Emily has loved singing and playing her tambourine along with those little bug and their Beatles music!
After saving the world from Black Star, NOV8 (that’s “Innovate”) has given teenaged secret agent, McKeyla McAlister, her most difficult assignment yet: blending in as an average high school student. It won’t be easy for McKeyla to turn off spy-mode, especially since criminal mastermind, Carson Lazarus, has moved to town. McKeyla’s friends Adrienne, Bryden and Camryn are eager to assist, but their task is compromised when all social media and technology devices are hacked by super-hacker Retro. As Retro brings mayhem to Maywood Glen, the girls must solve riddles and connect clues to decipher who Retro is, and why he is attacking Maywood Glen, before the city is wiped out.
Spencer watches this show and I am tickled pink! A show about kids and STEM is fun enough but a show where the girls are kicking butt with their brains is even better. Definitely check this one out and don’t rule the boys out, Spencer loves it at 8 years old.
These are 3 wonderful kid’s Netflix streaming choices for August. The Little Prince was my favorite, I’ve watched it 3 times so far. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
