The Snowy Day (2016) Rated TV-Y

Peter goes on a magical snowy walk to Nana’s house to bring home Christmas eve dinner. Based on the book by Ezra Jack Keats. Starring Laurence Fishburne, Donielle T. Hansley Jr., and Regina King.

This isn’t the most Christmassy themed film. It’s more about the innocence of childhood and the joys that come with the safety and  contentment of childhood loves. It also brings us the diversity of the holiday season, how we all celebrate differently, and the different cultures coming together during the holiday. It’s a fun, beautiful story with a simple message. This film brings the book to life; it was brilliantly animated. It’s a film that’s worth seeing with young children.
