Wednesday, October 28, 2015
The perfect handbook for movie-lovers of all ages, helping both kids and parents choose classic and contemporary movies appropriate for the entire family.

Movies are made to entertain! Movies can make you think, teach you a lesson, or just let you escape into a fantasy world for a few hours. This book serves as an interactive bucket list of films for children ages 8 and up to watch before they grow up. 101 Movies to See Before You Grow Up goes beyond mainstream films. From modern flicks to classic films, the list offers a wide selection of "must see" movies. The book is divided into categories and acts as an interactive film journal where kids can document when they see the movie, if they liked it, and how they would rate it. Each page focuses on a single movie with basic information about each film, including the director, runtime, rating, and date of release. There is also a "Film Critic" section at the bottom of each page that allows young movie buffs to write in their own opinions and observations about the movie. 101 Movies to See Before You Grow Up is the perfect handbook for movie-lovers of all ages, helping both kids and parents choose classic and contemporary movies appropriate for the entire family.

"101 Movies' takes you on an infectiously fun and informative journey through the best of our movie history. Trust Suzette Valle to highlight films for entertainment value and good taste - worth having in every room in the house!" -- Sharon Waxman, Founder & Editor-in-Chief, TheWrap

"In a world of too much media and too little family time, Suzette Valle's book has great movie choices that bring families closer." - Nell Minow aka "Movie Mom"

Goodreads Summary

This book is awesome. Not because it has a plot, but because it explores so much of the cinematography that I grew up watching and falling in love with. There is Disney, Star Wars, It's A Wonderful Life, alien movies, family movies, and so much more. It was so much fun perusing all of the movies I've seen, and the the few that I haven't seen. You will relive memories and find a few new possible adventure nights for the future. Every movie included in here is definitely a masterpiece that everyone should see at some point in their lives. On top of the writing content, this book has an intriguingly simple theme of illustrations that allow you to immediately recognize what movie they represent. Although this movie is aimed at kids, it will definitely give hours of entertainment for any person of any age group.

    My favourite childhood movie was The Ugly Daschund (Disney, not animated, with Dean Jones and Suzanne Pleshette). So funny!

  1. My favorite movie when I was a child was The Wizard of Oz. It only came on TV once a year and my family and I would all watch it together. Still a great movie.
