2006 Award
Samantha: An American Girl Holiday
(Warner Bros. $19.95 Score:) A charming story of friendship between Samantha, a wealthy young girl who lives in New York with her Grandmary, and Nellie O’Malley, the servant girl next door. We were concerned that this was just marketing for the American Girl Dolls by the same names, but, indeed, there’s a moving and meaningful story here, as well as a beautifully old-fashioned film with the look of Masterpiece Theatre, and with Mia Farrow. 7 & up.

Age: Early School Years,Later School Years. Award Year: 2006.

2005 Award
(New Line Home Entertainment $22.99 Score:) Starring Will Ferrell as the man who grew up at the North Pole, thinking he was an elf. He heads to New York to seek out his father, a Scrooge-inspired character played by James Caan. Ferrell is great at the physical humor that appeals to kids; adults also didn't mind this family fare with a memorable performance by Bob Newhart as Papa Elf. 9 & up.

Age: Later School Years. Award Year: 2005.
