MOVIE- Sherlock Gnomes
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Rating: Not yet rated
Cast: Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, James McAvoy, Chiwetel Ejiofor
Synopsis: As Gnomeo and Juliet prepare their garden for spring, they realize gnomes are being kidnapped throughout London. They call famous detective Sherlock Gnomes to investigate the case, which leads to adventures throughout the city.
Our Take: This sequel to 2011’s Gnomeo & Juliet capitalizes on the humor of cute pint-sized garden ornaments. But the trailer contains some questionable language and suggestive situations. If you watch the movie with your kids, discuss the impact of words and behaviors.
BOOK- The Girl Who Drank the Moon
Author: Kelly Barnhill
Synopsis: This fairy tale, winner of the 2017 Newbery Medal, is set in a village that sacrifices one baby each year by leaving it in the forest. The goal is to appease a witch who might destroy the community. But the witch, who’s actually kind, makes sure the babies are raised by loving families elsewhere. When she accidentally gives one baby magic, she decides to raise it herself.
Our Take: Although a central character is a witch, this book is full of positive messages and role models. Readers discover that love is the “magic” that holds things together in this story. The book can open the door for discussions about good and evil as defined by the Bible.
Synopsis: This rapper and social activist, also known as "Props," challenges listeners with bold lyrics about his relationship with God and society. Crooked, his fifth album, is a mix of rap, hip-hop, and poetry set to a beat. Its style is in line with pop culture, yet the songs are full of thought, American history, and the gospel.
Our Take: Like Lecrae, Props appeals to young listeners because of his mainstream sound. Yet he focuses on important social and spiritual questions, rather than violence, materialism, and hypersexuality. Crooked is a desirable music option for preteens and parents alike.
