Temple Grandin (DVD)

Temple Grandin (DVD)

Temple Grandin is a story of a young woman's life with autism and how she and her family worked with it. Quite amazing, a tadge disconcerting when she visits the stock yards and slaughter houses and how she addresses the issues of how the animals should be treated with care and respect. Actually, a couple of our patrons at the library met her when she was attending university. A great enlightening movie.

Soul Surfer (DVD)

A VERY nice family movie, actually based on a true story, so well done. The Soul Surfer is about a young girl that had her arm bitten off by a shark--a great portrait of family life in Hawaii and how the family coped with the devastating accident and over came everything.

A High Adventure Odyssey to Every State in the Union

 

Written by two Howell High School grads in 1920, who left home on an adventure and literally walked America. I believe a brother is still living in his 90s. What a narrator and an adventure!

The Horse Boy (DVD)

The Horse Boy (DVD)

I so recommend the DVD The Horse Boy. It’s a documentary filmed and narrated by the father and mother of a small autistic boy and their approach to healing by a Shaman in Mongolia after intense years of traditional medicine and procedures in the U.S. It is so exquisitely filmed – it’s not "smaltzy" or sad – just so profound. It really shows what extreme lengths parents will go to for their child. The scenery is truly breathtaking and the final outcome for the boy is very positive.
