- 35 Christmas Movies for Kids That'll Last You From Thanksgiving to Christmas
This series of short, minute adventures goes behind-the-scenes with an elite squadron of elves as they prepare for Santa's arrival and maintain the security of the North Pole.
Created by Disney, they have a lot of the same snap and wit as the Disney shorts that are shown theatrically before movies. Arthur's underdog status makes his journey feel extra triumphant. Join Peter as he crunches through the snow on a walk to bring Christmas Eve dinner to his grandmother's house. Mariah Carey does the voice of this movie's main character, a little girl who wants a puppy for Christmas, but it's really worth watching to get your kids as into the song as you are.
When Anna and Elsa realize that they have no family holiday rituals, Olaf goes on a mission to find them one. As he visits the townspeople and asks them about their family customs, kids will be reminded of their own cherished traditions. Use this one to tide your kids over until Frozen II comes out in November.

For those who want to see more of The Grinch but less of Jim Carrey , this movie — from the studio that brought us the Minions — offers a feature-length glimpse of his life. Benedict Cumberbatch provides the voice of The Grinch. Last year's big Christmas release showed a version of The Nutcracker that has never been seen before.

Gremlins About the Author Best known for the multi-award-winning fantasy trilogy His Dark Materials , British author Philip Pullman is one of our most distinguished writers of children's literature.
I was born in Norwich in , and educated in England, Zimbabwe, and Australia, before my family settled in North Wales. I received my secondary education at the excellent Ysgol Ardudwy, Harlech, and then went to Exeter College, Oxford, to read English, though I never learned to read it very well.
I found my way into the teaching profession at the age of 25, and taught at various Oxford Middle Schools before moving to Westminster College in , where I spent eight years involved in teaching students on the B. I have maintained a passionate interest in education, which leads me occasionally to make foolish and ill-considered remarks alleging that not everything is well in our schools. My main concern is that an over-emphasis on testing and league tables has led to a lack of time and freedom for a true, imaginative and humane engagement with literature.
My views on education are eccentric and unimportant, however. My only real claim to anyone's attention lies in my writing. I've published nearly twenty books, mostly of the sort that are read by children, though I'm happy to say that the natural audience for my work seems to be a mixed one - mixed in age, that is, though the more mixed in every other way as well, the better. My first children's book was Count Karlstein , republished in That was followed by The Ruby in the Smoke , the first in a quartet of books featuring the young Victorian adventurer, Sally Lockhart. I did a great deal of research for the background of these stories, and I don't intend to let it lie unused, so there will almost certainly be more of them.
I've also written a number of shorter stories which, for want of a better term, I call fairy tales. This is a kind of story I find very enjoyable, though immensely difficult to write. These books have been honoured by several prizes, including the Carnegie Medal, the Guardian Children's Book Award, and for The Amber Spyglass the Whitbread Book of the Year Award - the first time in the history of that prize that it was given to a children's book.
I was the recipient of the Eleanor Farjeon Award for children's literature.

At the award ceremony for that prize, which I was very proud to receive, I promised to spend my time in future making fewer speeches and writing more books. When I'm not writing books I like to draw and to make things out of wood. I also like to play the piano. I'd like to play it well, but I can't, so the rest of the family has to put up with my playing it badly. Help Centre. My Wishlist Sign In Join. Write a review.
