My family is very excited for Lionsgate’s release of Norm of the North on January 15th! We are a big movie watching family, whether at home by the fire or as an outing to the theater, we love sitting back and enjoying a great family movie together.
While planning our activities for the kids long weekend this week, I pulled up the Norm of the North preview and it was an instant hit with the kids.
Lilly was jumping around trying to “Shake her Bear Thing” while Aidan immediately saw Norm the polar bear dancing on his head and thought it was the coolest thing ever. So of course he had to try!
Norm of the North tells the story of Norm, a talkative, lovable polar bear who doesn’t quite fit in at home in the Arctic. However when his home is endanger of being overtaken by developers, he ventures out to NYC with a few helpful friends by his side, to take on the big apple and save the day.
This film tells a great story about facing fears, taking chances, and the amazing rewards that can come from stepping outside our comfort zone.
This is an incredible message for all children as they face challenges and new experiences growing up.
It especially resonates with my family this year as we plan a move from Massachusetts to Florida.
While I am sure my children are a little nervous and apprehensive about leaving family, friends and the everyday normal they’ve always known.
We are trying to focus on the new adventures we will be able to take. Highlighting the places we will be able to explore and the idea of living closer to grandparents and their uncle brings them excitement and helps them embrace the experience.
I can’t wait to use this fun movie as a talking point with the kids about how brave Norm was when he stepped out of his comfort zone!
