Horton is a Great Example!

Took the kids to see Horton Hears a Who! this weekend and let me tell you I enjoyed the Movie as much as the kids did, more even!! This is a must see for anyone with kids or anyone who enjoys a well made movie. Most of us already know the story line but for those who don’t Horton is an Elephant who finds a spec that he thinks (correctly) has people on it. Sorry if that spoils anything… His quest to protect and save them is the focus of the movie. There are so many great lessons that this movie reinforces I’m not sure where to start. Friendship, loyal friendship, respect, commitment, standing up for those who can’t stand up for themselves, sacrifice, make that personal sacrifice, believing in yourself, and facing fear.

I strongly suggest you see this movie and then use it when instructing a kids Martial Arts class, What would Horton do? Parents and Instructors can use this great film to help illustrate the complex concepts listed. There is even a great scene where Horton imagines he is a Karate Chopping hero, very cool.

For the big kids the animation and cinematography were stellar, if you are into the sort of thing. 😉
