The Littlest Angel is a super cute movie. It is about a boy (Littlest) and his dog Halo. Littlest arrives in heaven before his time. He and Halo return to earth to gather his treasure so that he can give it to the baby Jesus.It will prove to be the most selfless and precious gift. He was lonely and homesick. The treasure he was after was to remind him of earth.
My kids were in enthralled. They did not speak the entire way through and really enjoyed it. We had a whole discussion about the birth of Jesus afterwards. I highly recommend this movie. It is a great way to teach your kids about the reasons why good deeds are so important. Why it is to be nice, kind and good hearted person.
The Littlest Angel was released in 1946 in book form. In 1969 it was a musical starring Johnny Whitaker. The theatrical versions are still popular among churches and schools.The author also did the Littlest Snowman and that would be read on the Captain Kangaroo Show each year.
Here is what the Critics have to say
“This is a story that has made so many people happy over the years,” says Lance Thompson, one of the producers of the film. “We’ve added some new elements to this production, but this is still The Littlest Angel everyone remembers from their childhood, and one that parents will enjoy introducing to their kids. I think Tazewell would enjoy knowing his work lives on.”
It’s a modern twist on the timeless tale of an Angel that discovers the greatest gifts in life are faith, friendship and doing the right thing. This new version of The Littlest Angel features wonderful animation and great vocal talent, including Ron Perlman (“Beauty and The Beast,” Tangled), and is sure to become a holiday favorite, much like the book it’s based on. The Littlest Angel is a motion picture that will put a smile on everyone’s face, and what better gift is there than that.
