|This book contains descriptions and themes of 110 movies for discussion of issues vital to promote the emotional, social and intellectual growth and well being of children and teenagers. In the context of entertainment, explore topics such as: love, money, friendship, lying, cheating, teasing, adoption, divorce, sadness, moving, setting goals, alcohol, drugs and more. Movies can do much more than just entertain or baby sit our children.
Each "movie page" includes all pertinent production data, along with a short synopsis of the plot, Dr. Solomon's analysis of the movie's primary themes, and a list of sample questions to help you lead a fruitful family discussion. There is an Age Index to quickly find suitable movies for kids three and up! There is also a Theme Index to select movies linked to 29 distinct topics! If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a motion picture must be worth trillions. That, in a nutshell, is the wisdom behind Cinemaparenting®.
"As a children's librarian, I've had to order books for the parenting section of the library on a variety of subjects. I would most certainly recommend this book, not only to parents, but to teachers, counselors and school librarians who might use movies in class or for after-school programs……The book is rich with life lessons and encourages parents to raise children who will make the world a better place."
Reference Librarian, Community College of Southern Nevada
