If you haven’t seen or heard all the teenage girls swooning over Edward Cullen, then you might not be aware that a popular teen novel series called Twilight has hit theatres this weekend. While many of us in CM won’t run into too many littler kids who might know about Edward and Bella, we will run into preteen girls (grades 4-6) who will be all too aware of this romantic couple. Here is a link to a review by Time Magazine on the movie. I will be watching the movie in the next couple of days and submitting a review to Kidology. When I do, I will post the link to that review.
What are your thoughts on the Twilight series? The main hero, you may not know, is a vampire (a “vegetarian” vampire who only hunts animals and not humans) and thus adds to the intrigue of these stories. Have you run into any kids in your ministries who’ve read the books and plan to/have seen the movie? I’d be interested to hear some thoughts, and I’m sure others who read this blog would be interested as well. I’ll post my thoughts after I see the movie and write the Kidology review.
