Dove "Family-Approved" For Ages 12 and Over
I have always been a lover of classic movies of the 40s, especially when they are musicals. Movies of that era were filled with great costumes and trends of the times.

Dove "Family-Approved" For All Ages
I love the story of Anne of Green Gables, which is why I enjoyed this series of "Anne of Avonlea." Even as an adult Anne still seems to find trouble and continually puts her foot in her mouth. Her innocent charm makes up for her downfalls as she deals with adult issues. She still has her wild [...]

"Little Women" is based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott. It’s 1861 and the Marche family live in Concord, Mass and although the "War to Free the Slaves" is being fought far from home, it seems very close.
