The Secret World of Arrietty is coming to theaters next month on February 17th. Have you seen the clips for the movie yet? I’ll share one in a minute, it looks really cute, something my kids would enjoy. The Secret World of Arrietty is based on Mary Norton’s children’s book series “The Borrowers.” If your kids have never read these, I highly suggest you pick them up, very cute lots of adventures and fun.
The story is about Arrietty,an adventurous little 14 year old girl who like all of her kind must stay hidden and out of view from humans. The only time they come out is to “borrow” supplies they need. The story develops as Arrietty is seen by a boy that comes to live at the house, Shawn, and begins a friendship that could drive Arrietty’s family out of the house if anyone else ever discovered they were there.
Adventures galore! The preview is really neat, take a look then you can print out some coloring sheets for the kids here.
