Have you read it? Seen it? Loved it?

I've managed to have a few moments of fun, mixed in with all the work these last few weeks ....
One of those was going to see The Help.

Amazingly enough, I even managed to read the book before I went to see the movie!

To say I loved them BOTH is an understatement.
Love, LOVE, LOVE these ladies ....
Reading the book first made it so much fun to compare my version of the characters with the "real" characters .... and all in all, I thought the casting was perfection.
If you haven't seen the movie or read the book .... do it.  Both of them.
You won't regret it!

One of my favorite parts of the whole book/movie...?
Aibileen saying this to that little girl over and over just pulled at my heart strings to no end.
How would ANY child be affected by someone telling them that they are KIND, SMART, and IMPORTANT every single day?
Definitely took this lesson to heart .... both in my home and in my classroom!


  1. I read the book, but I haven't seen the movie. I lived during this time so a lot of it was familiar. I loved that daily affirmation also. As teachers especially, it's so important to tell students that they CAN learn whatever it is we're teaching.

  2. I also loved both the book and the movie!

  3. I am going see this movie tonight. Thanks for sharing.


  4. I read the book and it was amazing. I can't wait to see the movie! :)

  5. Read the book and saw the movie...AMAZING !!! BOTH of them !!! Oscar nominations will most definitely be forthcoming ! ;o)))

  6. I'm reading the book right now! I can't wait to go see the movie!!


Thank you for your comments!
I love EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. :-)
