clifford.jpgThis time, I have free DVDs for ages 2-5 for the first five readers who email me at moviemom@moviemom.com. You do not need to send your address until I let you know that you have won. As always, I love hearing from you about your families and the movies you enjoy together (or those you did not enjoy) and any questions or additional information I can provide.
Remember — send an email to moviemom@moviemom.com, if you want a DVD. Comments below are always welcome, but only those who send emails will be eligible.
And keep checking, as the next giveaway will be mystery and thriller DVDs for adults! Coming up after that will be a promotional item from the new Indiana Jones movie, so stay tuned.

    Welcome, Eileen! Your son is very lucky to have a mom who is careful about media and other issues. I am very glad you found me and please comment or email any time (moviemom@moviemom.com) if I can be of any help.

    Thanks for writing — these are all gone but I keep giving away more all the time so keep checking. I do not recommend any DVDs for kids under age 2 however. That is when they should be cuddled and read to and played with full-time.

Switched at Birth and the End of Life
I'm a big fan of ABC Family's Switched at Birth and have appreciated its complicated characters, honest and heartfelt relationships, and compelling storylines, as well as its unprecedented, in-depth portrayal of the deaf community.
