The kids and I finally saw the new Peanuts movie. We missed it at the theater last year, so we were really looking forward to seeing the new animated film from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The wait was worth it. We loved it! My children have never seen the Peanuts specials on TV, and it’s been many years since I saw one too. The new movie is pretty much how I remembered the classic show. It has the same style as the old specials. And more importantly, the characters are as loveable as ever. The Peanuts Movie is available now on Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD. BTW, for a limited time, you can get the limited edition gift set that includes a Snoopy Flying Ace plushie toy. Note: I received a movie for review on my dad blog.
Over the weekend, we had a family movie night. It’s always good when the whole family can sit down together to enjoy a fun movie. This time, we watched the new Peanuts Movie. The animated film was awesome and brought back memories of the classic Charlie Brown specials when I was a kid. My children had a fun time too even though they have never seen a Charlie Brown show before. BTW, I received a viewing kit consisting of Peanuts memorabilia, activities, apparel and All Detergent (for cleaning the kids messy clothes after the party). The Peanuts Movie (Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment) is available now on Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD. Check out my photos of our fun movie night with the Peanuts gang.

This week on my dad blog, I have three short news stories that may be of interest to dads and moms:
Read Across America at Walmart
Walmart.com is running a month-long promotion on children books as part of Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Dads and moms can save up to 40% on the top 500 children’s books. Parents can purchase children books for as low as $3 (including free shipping). According to various studies, by the age of two, children who are read to regularly display greater language comprehension, larger vocabularies, and higher cognitive skills. The Early Childhood Longitudinal Study found that children who were read to at least three times a week by a family member were almost twice as likely to score in the top 25 percent in reading.
