Documentaries For Preschoolers Through Tweens

Family movie night doesn’t have to be for fictional tales only–we love a good documentary or documentary series in our house! With so many kids spending more time at home these days–and even learning remotely–we thought we’d round up a list of good documentaries for preschoolers through tweens and teens. Join us!

Movies At The Theater!

How young is too young to enjoy a movie in the theater? How do we handle choosing movies that aren’t too loud, scary, or overwhelming when viewed on the silver screen? And what, most importantly, does our 11-year-old co-host think are the best movie snacks and treats? Episode 8 is all about the experience of seeing movies in the theater, from toddler to tween and as a whole family. Join us!

“Can I Watch This?” (The Hunger Games & Parental Guidance)

How do we handle it when kids want to watch, read, or listen to something that parents think is of questionable appropriateness? We recently read The Hunger Games together – mom and 6th grader – and in Episode 3 of Kidliterate we discuss how we arrived at the decision to do that, as well as what we look at when making these judgment calls in general.
