I am sure your family enjoys an occasional movie night. We have one every Friday night and it's a real treat since it's the only thing our children watch ALL week. We pop some corn or munch on some freshly baked treats and then relax after a busy schedule.
Today I would like to recommend the movie, Treasures of the Snow, which is based off the book by Patricia St. John. This excellent story of forgiveness and repentance takes place in the beautiful mountains of Switzerland. Children will sympathize with these characters and parents will appreciate the delicate way that the author teaches timeless lessons. Appropriate for all ages.
What is it about?
"High in the Swiss Alps, little Danny disappears. When he is found---alive, but seriously injured---his sister, Annette, vows revenge. Lucien, who caused the accident, escapes to the forest where he is taken in by a godly old woodcarver. Lucien wants to make amends, but will Annette learn to forgive him? Features easy-access chapter-title search. Treasures of the Snow was filmed in the breathtaking Swiss Alps. The charm of genuine antique chalets will delight you. And you will experience real life drama, the tensions of ordinary people under pressures and the satisfaction of righteousness rewarded."
