Do you still remember “The Tale of Peter Rabbit”?
Well, would like to recommend a nice movie telling story about the author for this beautiful children book, Beatrix Potter, “Miss Potter”.
I am glad to know another beautiful soul.
Beatrix Potter was an English writer, illustrator, natural scientist, and conservationist best known for her children’s books featuring animals, such as those in The Tale of Peter Rabbit. She overcame many obstacles in her quest to become a writer, including a domineering mother and the chauvinism prevalent in Victorian England. And the part that touch me the most, was her being a fierce campaigner on local conservation issues and passionate about preserving a way of life.
Beatrix purchased a considerable amount of land in the Lake District and when she died in 1943, she left 4,000 acres of land and countryside to the National Trust, as well as 14 farms. All of these farms are still working farms managed by National Trust tenant farmers, in accordance with her wishes.

Went back hometown together with my sisters and their kids. Having lotsa fun. Dag out this old movie “Babe 1995” and let the kids watch.
Here is the synopsis from Wikipedia:
“Gentle farmer Arthur Hoggett wins a piglet named Babe at a county fair. Narrowly escaping his fate as Christmas dinner when Farmer Hoggett decides to show him at the next fair, Babe bonds with motherly border collie Fly and discovers that he too can herd sheep. But will the other farm animals, including Fly’s jealous husband Rex, accept a pig who doesn’t conform to the farm’s social hierarchy?”
Nephew Lawrence sent me this voice message when we left, “This is my favorite movie.”
I am not sure I want to watch this movie with my girls. (I explain later) It has a beautiful Chinese name 《海上钢琴师》. The film was nominated for a variety of awards worldwide, winning several for its soundtrack.
“The Legend of 1900” is a story about a deserted baby boy, discovered on New Year’s Day 1900 on an ocean liner, Virginian, by a crew member, Danny who decides to adopt him, nicknaming him “1900”. “1900” grows into a musical prodigy aboard the boat, never setting foot on land. … but then the ending, mm… that is the part which makes me hesitate to watch it together with my girls. I cannot comprehension why “1900” make such decision. Is it heroic? Why ? .. I don’t have answer for it.
Or you can watch it here with English subtitle: http://video.1speaking.com/detail/?605.html
Listening to the “1900” playing love again:
This is another nice family movie for coming holiday, especially for those with kids in Standard 4. They learn a bit about Ice Age in their History class. The story is set during the Ice Age, a sabertooth tiger, a sloth, and a wooly mammoth find a lost human infant, and they try to return him to his tribe.
We watched it online from this site with both English and Chinese subtitles: http://video.1speaking.com/detail/?226.html
Here is the official trailer. This picture is nice 🙂
This is another movie I promise my girls to look up for them.
Not able to find in youtube, but manage to find in this site: http://www.1speaking.com, a Chinese website promoting English learning. It has a section where you can watch English movies with subtitle (though there are some spelling errors). Ya, I always believe watching movies help picking up languages 🙂
