Movie: Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax
Rating: PG (for brief mild
Cast: Voices of Taylor Swift, Zac Efron, Danny DeVito, Ed Helms
Synopsis: This environmental tale gets a modern adaptation, as 12-year-old Ted searches for an
extinct tree to impress his crush.
Our Take: The film should appeal to viewers of all ages. Families can use the story of the treeless town of Thneedville to discuss ways to care for God’s earth.
Artist: Sidewalk Prophets
Album: Live Like That
Artist Info: This Christian band from Nashville gained fans with songs such as “The Words I Would Say” and “You Love Me Anyway” from their debut album, These Simple Truths.
Summary: The new album is filled with what’s been described as musical devotions. The title track is about people who impact our faith by how they live.
Our Take: Older children and
preteens will enjoy singing along to these positive, uplifting lyrics.
