Ten Favorite Children’s Movies


The topic this week for Ten on Tuesday is, ‘What are ten favorite children’s movies?’ Our family has many of the same favorites as yours, I am sure, but I decided to list some Japanese animated films by Hayao Miyazaki which are some of our all-time favorites. Also, here is a YouTube video biography of Miyazaki by Erica Karen which is excellent. Without further ado, here are some of our Miyazaki favorites:

  1. The Castle of Cagliostro
  2. Whisper of the Heart
  3. My Neighbor Totoro
  4. Kiki’s Delivery Service
  5. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
  6. Howl’s Moving Castle
  7. Laputa: Castle in the Sky
  8. Spirited Away
  9. Porco Rosso
  10. Princess Mononoke

    So, it looks like we have a whole new set of movies to investigate. Interestingly enough, I haven’t heard of these, so I appreciate the recommendation! We’ll have to check them out from our library!

    Have a great day!

    Wow – I’m so not internationally savvy in this category. I was going to suggest “The Princess Bride.”
