Today we're looking at the best movies children should see. So, hi to children, parents, random internet browsers and adults who have never really grown up. Welcome to all, but mostly to children.
You, my younglings, are at an excellent stage in life. School might be rubbish but once your homework is out of the way you're free to watch movie after movie.
But Where to Start?
You've probably already seen every Disney movie ever, and animated movies can a bit tiresome after a while. Well, Kerry is a little bit older than you and has watched many fantastic children's movies in her time, both as a child and as an adult.

Home Alone (1990)
Like the sound of desgning intricate plots to deter criminals from your house? Who doesn't! Home Alone will teach you that if mummy and daddy leave you at home you'll be absolutely fine so long as you can foil the plots of criminals that try to break into your house.

P.S. Don't be a pain for your parents. They're the ones with the money.
Popcorn at the ready
