“Settled in with the Brown family, Paddington the bear is a popular member of the community who spreads joy and marmalade wherever he goes. One fine day, he spots a pop-up book in an antique shop — the perfect present for his beloved aunt’s 100th birthday. When a thief steals the prized book, Paddington embarks on an epic quest to unmask the culprit before Aunt Lucy’s big celebration.”
I was invited to the screening of Paddington 2, and decided it was a perfect time to include my son and a friend. They are both 9 years old, so I knew they would enjoy it. I had no idea that I would enjoy it just as much as they did. Paddington is so lovable and despite the mishap that occurs, he finds himself on an adventure he will not forget. Paddington is a classic tale that I remember reading as a kid, and as I got older, I shared that love with my own children and my library students.
This movie is 100% family and kid friendly. I love that families (of all ages) will be able to see the movie and not worry about the content. There are no surprises to worry about and I guarantee it’s just a wonderful tale that everyone will love.
Those Marmalade Sandwiches
I admit, I was always intrigued when it came to Paddington and his love for marmalade sandwiches. I think now is the right time to give marmalade sandwiches a try for myself.
Check out how I made it happen:
- Orange Marmalade (any brand)
- Butter Knife
How Did I Make It?
- Toast two slices of bread.
- Open the “handpicked” Orange Marmalade (because I have no idea to make it from scratch)
- Using the butter knife, “lovingly” spread the marmalade throughout the bread (both sides). Put the slices together.
- Cut your sandwich as you see fit and Enjoy!
I know, I Know….. it’s SO easy to make, but I couldn’t help myself. Besides, how can I talk about Paddington 2 without discussing what he loved the most? Right? By the way, we liked them a lot!
The movie was simple and to the point. I think that is a trait that is missing from some movies for children. Not all movies that to be a huge production to be successful. The characters were all woven into the storyline as if they were placed there with ease. Even the prison scene (no spoiler) was made to look colorful despite the environment. Paddington has lessons to teach and so many of us could learn a lesson or two for sure. It is such a wonderful story and I can’t wait for everyone else to see and enjoy it as well.
Until Next Time!
