These days, it’s hard to find a kid’s movie that a) is completely wholesome and honoring to girls, and b) doesn’t slap you in the face with its socio-political agenda! However, I’ve always loved the American Girl movies. My kids can identify with the girls, they learn a little history, and I have no qualms when they want to dress up and reenact the story.
When Kit Kittredge was released, I looked for a theater playing the movie near us, and the closest I could find was an hour and a half away. We were disappointed at first, but I turned it into a road trip adventure for me and the kids. We met my friend, Heather, who lives near the theater, and made a day of it!
