Both highly suspenseful and deeply emotional, ROOM is a unique and unexpectedly tender exploration of the boundless love between a mother and her child under the most harrowing of circumstances.

 

ROOM movie opens November 6

 

ROOM tells the extraordinary story of Jack (Jacob Tremblay in a breakout performance), a spirited 5 year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted Ma (Brie Larson, SHORT TERM 12, TRAINWRECK).  Like any good mother, Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. Their life, however, is anything but typical—they are trapped—confined to a windowless, 10-by-10-foot space, which Ma has euphemistically named “Room.” Ma has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life.   But as Jack’s curiosity about their situation grows, and Ma’s resilience reaches its breaking point, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world.  ROOM also stars three-time Academy Award® nominee Joan Allen and Academy Award® nominee William H. Macy.
 


At once a taut narrative of captivity and freedom, an imaginative trip into the wonders of childhood, and a profound portrait of a family’s bonds and fortitude, ROOM is a beautifully transcendent experience based on the award-winning global bestseller by Emma Donoghue. Director Lenny Abrahamson (FRANK) remains faithful to the novel while bringing Jack, Ma and their entirely singular world to heart-pounding and intensely cinematic life. ROOM demonstrates the triumphant power of familial love even in the darkest of circumstances, and is sure to take its place among the most emotionally affecting films to ever explore the bond between parents and children.

Highly Rated E-Book About Keeping Kids Safe Online FREE NOW!

A Parent's Guide to Ensuring Your Children Are Safe Online Protect Yourself, Protect Your Children by Gary McKraken

 

One of the most challenging aspects of being a parent in this digital age is keeping my child safe online.  We’ve avoided social media to this point, simply because I’m a firm believer in following the Terms of Service that detail users must be 13 years old.  But it’s harder to avoid using the internet at all.  I’ve found that the filters I’ve put on my router and her devices don’t work as well as I would like and it’s frustrating to have her go through me to do all of her homework and research.  What’s a diligent parent to do?

I’m hoping this e-book can provide some answers.  The title, A Parent’s Guide to Ensuring Your Children Are Safe Online Protect Yourself, Protect Your Children by Gary McKraken, sure makes me think it can be of help.  And it’s FREE at the time of this post, so I’m hopeful it will.  I’ll read it and post a review soon.

Could there be a more wonderful literary holiday to celebrate than Read Across America Day?  AND… it’s observed on Dr. Seuss’s birthday?!?  I don’t think so!

Ariel and I adore Dr. Seuss books, of which we have many, and one of our favorite musicals is Seussical.  The whimsy and creative writing style of Dr. Seuss has been a favorite of generations of children and there’s no better day to celebrate reading than on his birthday!

 

Happy Birthday to You! by Dr. Seuss

Hot Book Gift Idea–The Book With No Pictures

by Paula on December 17, 2014

Thr Book With No Pictures

 

As recommended by the good folks at the Today Show—it’s The Book With No Pictures, a rib-tickling, laugh-out-loud kids book that will entertain both reader and listener.

I love this idea!!

From the book description on Amazon:

You might think a book with no pictures seems boring and serious. Except . . . here’s how books work. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say . . .

BLORK. Or BLUURF.

Even if the words are a preposterous song about eating ants for breakfast, or just a list of astonishingly goofy sounds like BLAGGITY BLAGGITY and GLIBBITY GLOBBITY.

Cleverly irreverent and irresistibly silly, The Book with No Pictures is one that kids will beg to hear again and again. (And parents will be happy to oblige.)

 

Sounds like fun!!  Go here to get a copy from Amazon.

And enjoy watching the author, B.J. Novak, as he reads to a group of young schoolchildren.  He’s obviously proud of his work and the kids are roaring in delight.
