Camp Warner Bros - Week 1 - Super Hero Week

This week marks the first week of Camp Warner Bros. -- Super Hero Week. Its featured movie is LEGO® DC: Shazam! Magic and Monsters, which is now available on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD.

About the Movie:

10-year-old Billy Batson shouts a single word and, with lightning bolts flashing, he transforms into Shazam!, a full-fledged adult Super Hero. It doesn’t take long for Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and the rest of the Justice League to take notice and invite the earnest do-gooder to join the team. But to become a member, Billy must reveal his true identity. While fighting off the evil Mr. Mind and Black Adam, Billy learns that he must trust others – and that nothing creates trust like helping those in need. Join the good fight with this giant-sized LEGO DC adventure!

This movie nicely combines some of kids' favorite elements, including not one, or two, but an army of popular DC Super Heroes, along with familiar LEGO figures. The story is heartwarming, uplifting, and exciting, enriched by fast actions, funny moments and likeable characters. Everyone in our family enjoyed watching this movie.

Think Outside the Box Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway


Have you ever told your child to think outside the box, but found yourself scratching your head when asked to explain what it really means? Justine Avery's new picture book Think Outside the Box will help you out. Check it out and enter to win one of many prizes offered by the author!

My Review:

To think outside the box is easier said than done. Think Outside the Box not only encourages young readers to think creatively, but also lays out situations that call for creative thinking and translates the somewhat abstract concept into concrete examples that are easier for the little ones to comprehend.

The book first offers thinking outside the box as the solution to various kinds of problems we encounter in life, and then it focuses on a detailed and vivid explanation of the phrase by suggesting actions that can be considered as thinking outside the box. Some of my favorites include "eating an ice cream cone from the bottom up," "coloring outside the lines-on purpose," "being proud of your mistakes [b]ecause they're just as valuable as every time you get things out."

Besides its easy-to-understand, colloquial language, the book helps young readers get a better idea of thinking outside the box through colorful, humorous illustrations featuring fun shapes and funny images. Think Outside the Box is an inspiring, charming read for children and adults alike, for its clear message about creativity, problem-solving and independent thinking applies to everyone!


About the Book:

Written by Justine Avery
Illustrated by Liuba Syrotiuk

For the artist, the free thinker, the uniquely inventive individual in each of us, Think Outside the Box unlocks the key to applying creativity to daily life and turning any problem or worry inside out.

Designed to define out-of-the-box thinking for the youngest of us, this fun and unique illustrative journey reminds us all how simple and practical it can be to apply a new perspective to even the most daunting challenges.

Think Outside the Box is an at-home library must-have for any future idealist, instigator, activist, maverick, or mover and shaker—and every individual.
