Bring home Disney's Lady and the Tramp

Disclaimer: The Fandads were provided with a digital copy of Lady and the Tramp for review. All thoughts, opinions, and plates of spaghetti that we ate are our own. 

I remember when I was younger seeing Lady and the Tramp as a double feature with The Aristocats and maybe that is why I always mix up the two, but one thing for sure I always remember is the spaghetti scene. Little-by-little I have been introducing my children to all the movies I loved growing up and now I can add Lady and the Tramp to that collection thanks to the recently released Signature Edition of the beloved classic on Blu-ray and DVD.

Get Ready to Ragnarok at home with Thor!

Disclaimer: Fandads were provided with an advance copy of Thor:Ragnarok to review. All thoughts and opinions are our own. 

Out today on Blu-ray, DVD and 4k HD is one of the recent funniest movies from Marvel Studios, Thor: Ragnarok. While funniest maybe a big overstatement, it did have a lot of funny movements and that also alienated some people from it. You can read our review of the movie here, but we have a little more to tell you about the home release.

It's Read Across America Day!!

I love to read and fortunately, my daughters have seemed to inherit that from both of their parents. Nothing really compares to the images you conjure while reading a great book and even though many movies do a great job in adapting them, it's difficult to compete with your imagination. Well, I'm probably preaching to the choir since you are here, reading this post right now, right this second....banana.

HA! I made you read and/or say banana. (If you don't get that, then you might not be a parent, or at least not fans of Elephant and Piggie) Anyway, back on track, today is Read Across America Day!

NEA's Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. My girls have been celebrating it at school all week long and the school where I work at is having an event celebrating it today. So what can we do to join in on the fun?

You can start out by taking some #shelfies with your favorite books and/or kids. The NEA has more information on their page, but really I'd say just take the opportunity to do some reading. I won't go into the literature that shows how important it is for children to learn, or try to lecture anyone on the benefits. Instead, why not just have some fun with it. Introduce your kids to your favorite book (or comic book). Revisit an old story or book you haven't read in years. Maybe there's a movie you enjoy based on a book you've never read, there a ton of reasons to crack open a book.

Today's a great day to get to it! Read! Get after it! What book are you going to share with your children today? Share with us in the comments below.

Black Panther Review #WakandaForever

I've mentioned before that growing up, Spider-Man was my favorite superhero of all time. While I knew that we both didn't look alike, knowing that Peter Parker was a smart boy that was just trying to fit in sometimes was something that I related to. I remember the first time I saw him on the big screen it felt really good and I teared up a little because this was my guy and in a small and strange way, that was me. I feel that many young children who have never seen themselves represented on the big screen are going to have that same experience that I had when they see Black Panther.
