Good Old Fashioned Charm
on 15 September 2011
There is a lovely quality to these hand drawn cartoons told without dialogue and set to music. The stories are charmingly simple and move at a perfect pace, giving children the time to marvel at the beautiful illustrations and engage with the stories. My kids (6 and 4) love the Hiawatha tale and find it very funny, I so enjoy listening to their peals of laughter. One of the lesser known tales 'The Windmill' is set on a stormy night and is about animals who live in a disused and dilapidated windmill. This is a lovely example of a story that deals with danger and hardship without resorting to violence and aggression. The six stories on this DVD are full of old world charm told with some of the best illustrations ever made.
