Movie Review: Nim's Island
Before going to see Horton Hears A Who, it had been over a year since we had been to the movies, and today we got to go and see Nim's Island. Chelsea had read the book by Wendy Orr, we had watched the special on Animal Planet about the movie, and completed the activities from the Educator Guide off of http://www.walden.com/. It was a little different than what I expected but a great family movie. There was nothing that I found objectionable in the movie and all of the children enjoyed it. Alex (4) was afraid of the storm scenes and a scene where they showed a shark, and Chelsea (11) was disappointed in some parts that were a little different from the book. We al know that is the way it is, the book is always better than the movie. All in all we had a good time and it is a movie that I would recommend.
