The Jungle Book Now Released on DVD

Have you gotten your copy yet? This movie is adorable- kids of all ages (and the young at heart) will love it. It’s a good one to watch with the whole family- and there are not really any horribly scary parts, even though the movie has “real” animals in it, not cartoon versions. (Yes, they are “real” fake animals, lol- but real looking.)

Now that the sun is finally starting to peek its head around the clouds and warm that nip out of the air its time to start thinking about family trips. As with most family trips kids will of course be coming, drat. But fear not human parents, with the help of Scholastic there are many tips to be found to make the most of your trip, either during the school year or just making it through a long car or plane ride.

In our house Dad likes his audio books in the car while Mom can’t stand them, but what if the audio books were more kid centered. With audio books the longest of rides are simply eaten away at with a good story and an enthusiastic reader. Scholastic has a few suggestions for children of all ages and I am sure if Mom, Dad and little one look through the list together they will find at least one story they can all enjoy together.

If audio books aren’t for you there are also tablets for the kids and adults, as well as portable music players and digital games for little kids, big kids and adult kids. With your in flight entertainment figured out its time to wrap your head around school work. What are some ways to keep your kid stimulated and learning while on vacation?

The Only Cure for THE JUNGLE BOOK Movie is MORE COWBELL! #JungleBook

We just saw the new live action version of Disney’s “The Jung;e Book”.  My son loved the animated version, as well as Rudyard Kipling’s story.  As a huge animal lover, I knew he would love this one, and he certainly did.  It’s a little dark for the littlest viewers (there is some animal violence, nothing graphic at all) but some of the little peanuts got scared, so be warned.

My boy is 8, and I think he is a great age for this movie. My husband and I really enjoyed it as well, and I’m not a person to go nuts for children’s movies.  It was sweet, kept everyone’s attention, and was really, really well done. Not to mention the voices were fun- especially Christopher Walken as King Louie, haha.

Fun “Easter Egg” moment- Mowgli in the monkey temple.  Fans of SNL and Walken in general will get a kick out of this fun moment.
