These stories are classic Pooh, wonderfully animated and voiced, based on the original A. A. Milne stories. The original songs are charming and stick in your head for days (watch out!). My daughter (2) loves these stories and will ask for them over and over.
The concept of extraction and inception was interesting and the visuals were very well done but the story line was lacking. The underlying reason for the inception wasn't compelling. The story line about the father and son had the most heart ironically. I spent most of the movie trying to keep up with what was going on and as a result was not emotionally invested in the characters or the story.
As could be guessed from the titles, this album is a little more low key than "Waking Up." I love the melodies and lyrics. They are somewhat similar to Coldplay but have their own sound.
I first heard this band on the Coldplay channel on Pandora and loved their sound. They have great melodies, both slower and more upbeat and I enjoy their lyrics. I can't wait for their next album to come out.
I never intended to read this book. I had heard the hype and at first I didn't want to buy into it. But once I started reading, I really enjoyed it. Amy is an excellent writer and very open and honest about how she raised her daughters. Her approach is very different to mine (and very different from many "Western" parents). But it provides good food for thought. It made me question how I parent, how I set expectations for my children, what I do to help them succeed and what "success" ultimately means.
