When you wish upon a star…If you could wish for anything, what would it be? I asked Emily that question the other night while we were watching Pinocchio and she said “I want to live in a castle like a princess and have a beautiful gown dress, tiara and all of my family with me”. Naturally Anabelle mimicked her sisters wish “live in castle like a princess.” Hey, I’m not hating, I already play the Queen, might as well get a castle right? They do come with housekeepers and chefs…and I am all for it. While I may not be able to secure you a castle, I’d like to give you a chance to make your own wishes for the Pinocchio movie giveaway.
Buratino aka Pinocchio
I remember the story of Pinocchio well from my childhood. Except, he wasn’t Pinocchio – his name was Buratino in Russian – this is the book I had as a kid and still have, except I don’t know how to read Russian. The story is the same, whether in English or in Russian. I’m holding onto the book for memories. Also because I’m hoping my girls will learn to read so they can share it with their future children.
It was really nice to finally introduce Pinocchio, which released today on Blu-ray, to the girls. Especially with its wishful story line and lessons to be learned. As you might recall, Pinocchio tells the tale of wood-carver Geppetto’s beloved puppet who embarks on a thrilling quest – with faithful friend Jiminy Cricket – that tests his bravery, loyalty and honesty, all virtues he must learn to fulfill his heart’s desire: to become a real boy.
I think we can all agree that bravery, loyalty and above all – honesty, are all great virtues we want to see our children learn and grow with.
