Winnie the Pooh: Springtime With RooBy Jane Louise Boursaw
MPAA Rating: G
As with the other Pooh movies, friendship and compassion are the stars in this one. It’s Easter morning, and Roo is excited to get on with the festivities. But when he, Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore arrive at Rabbit’s door for the big Easter egg hunt, Rabbit seems to have forgotten Easter and proclaims it “Spring Cleaning Day” instead. The dispirited gang decides to surprise Rabbit by putting up his Easter decorations, but the grumpy bunny isn’t at all happy with their efforts and furiously declares that Easter is canceled! It turns out that everyone has been selfish in some degree by failing to consider the feelings and desires of each other. But maybe a little mutual understanding and caring will salvage Easter for Roo, Rabbit, and the rest of the gang. If your preschoolers are driving you nuts by watching the same Pooh movies over and over, throw this 2004 offering into the mix. It's 60 minutes of springtime learning that kids 2 to 6 will love.
