A simple story of three children from anther time in history- perhaps the early 1900'2, who are without their parents and need to be resourcefuk in order to survive. We enjoyed its simplicity, which is not always the easiest thing to do these days. I remember these books from my childhood and watched with my 11 year old daughter. It was enjoyable, but not spectatcular.

really sweet movie
