I have been dying to share this film with my kids since it is one of my all time favorite Disney movies.
So, since I was sick the last few days, I curled up on the couch with my kiddos and watched the movie.
They LOVED it! Zack and Libby really enjoyed it and followed along with the story since they are older. Alexander on the other hand was simply captivated by everything in the movie.
So much so that when the Alex took him to the store, he pointed out everything that had Bambi on it.
He loved the characters, the music, just everything about the movie.
This was one of his favorite parts.
Actually, I should say it WAS his favorite part until I introduced him to the special features.
From there….I lost him to the TV.
His favorite…Disney’s Big Book of Knowledge: Bambi Edition.
