The movie; "Horton Hears a Who" has MANY redeeming themes in it, and I do recommend this movie for everyone. However, there is something you may want to be aware of. :idea: A "Bad Guy" in the movie is a "Pouch Schooling" Kangaroo who back-handedly plays the part of a "Homeschooler" mom every negative way. I know that not all homeschoolers are great and that portraying ONE as a fanatic is not far off-base. (Goodness knows lawyers never get a break either, eh? ) But my children are only 5 ans 7 years old. Discussing it with my kids, that there are stereo-types everywhere in life, really helped us open doors on the discussion of how the world views us. That it is our job, in the real world to show people that the movie does not define us. I know that if we did not talk about it, my kids would have felt like they were being made fun of. (Their words). Bu tnow they see that just because that was one persons opinion of a homeschooling parent, that does not change who they are. However, friends who see the movie may "unsuspectingly" think that our family is just like the kangaroo family. So with that in mind, this review is not meant to make you not want to see the movie, just to be prepared to discuss this portrayal with your children before hand, or after. If you see the need to. I felt the need to. But, that is Hollywood, and goodness knows it doesn't sell to portray homeschoolers in a positive light. I am rambling, but you get my point. Great flick, just know that this one character my ruffle your feathers.
