How Martha Saved Her Parents from Green Beans by David LaRochelle – Review

We got the family out to The Red Balloon Bookshop this weekend to see David LaRochelle and Mark Fearing with their new book, How Martha Saved Her Parents from Green Beans. This is a feat for us these days. Someone always decides the nap they didn’t want two hours ago is now necessary right when we need to leave; or we have a diaper blow out; or we are just subjected to a general break down.

Five Fun Video Shorts for Families

These family friendly short films were originally screened in April of 2013, at Hennepin County Library’s former Childish Films program. This library program introduced families to several short independent films that are both family-friendly and engaging. Filmes were selected by the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival (MSPIFF), and specifically chosen for kids.

If, like mine, your kids like to watch their favorite videos over and over and over. You can find them here. We enjoy most of these short films enough that sometimes, we have short film nights at home. If you like these videos, search the filmmakers profile to find more videos. You can also find more independent and international films for kids each spring at the MSPIFF.

Papa Cloudy: Heartfelt Stories of a Gentle Cloud (Akiko McQuerrey, USA, 5 min).  If you like this, there are several more Papa Cloudy videos on Vimeo, too. Read More
