What we thought:  We loved watching this storybook classic come to life!  Stellaluna is one of our favorite books and the movie was wonderful.  This story teaches important lessons about being yourself and standing up for what you believe in as well as sticking up for others no matter how different they are.  The colorful characters and fun music really get the kiddos involved in the story.  What a great way to teach the importance of friendship and uniqueness:)  ABCD Diaries gives Stellaluna an A+!
