GIVEAWAY: American Girl’s “Saige Paints the Sky” DVD

These statements are all true:

  • I have three little girls (ages 6, 4, and 1).
  • We love to explore and discuss history.
  • We appreciate stories about strong girls.
  • We are in the habit of reading through chapter books at bedtime.

Hence, we love the American Girl books. Thus far, we’ve read through Samantha, Felicity, Molly, Josefina, and Saige. It’s fascinating to get a glimpse of different eras of history and what life might have been like for a young girl. Although I wouldn’t necessarily put the stories on the shelf next to “The Secret Garden” and “Little House,” they are very fun and full of good life lessons.

American Girl’s newest book centers around Saige, an artistic and affluent redhead from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Unlike other AG stories, this one is in the modern day. With the help of her grandma, her friends, and her parents, Saige leads the efforts to bring back art to her school, after funding is cut. An inspiring story about the power of action and the importance of creating change instead of complaining about circumstances.

Saige Paints the Sky GIVEAWAY: American Girls Saige Paints the Sky DVD

While the girls in the film are far more fashionable and wear much more make-up than the fourth graders I know (do 4th graders even wear make-up?), I enjoyed the girls’ energy about the fine arts and how they ultimately collaborate toward a big goal. “Saige Paints the Sky” is clearly a straight-for-TV movie, but it’s a sweet one with positive messages and a heroine that introverted girls will especially relate to.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 13 when the film will premiere on TV on NBC at 8/7c.

The DVD is also available for purchase on Amazon for approximately $12.
