Celebrate Sisterhood {Disney Secret of the Wings Giveaway!}

Celebrate Sisterhood {Disney Secret of the Wings Giveaway!} | Historic Wisconsin | Scoop.it

I would like to start by saying that I was given the opportunity to review a soon-to-be released Disney movie, but let's just be honest here.It was really my three girls whom the opportunity fell upon. Especially since they literally mauled me when I told them I had a copy of Disney’s new Tinker Bell movie, Secret of the Wings. Yeah, I’m now the coolest mom on the block.

I actually adore all the Tinker Bell movies for two reasons: 1. Everyone in my house loves watching them; my son included. and 2. They always have some great message about friendship, love, and courage. Did I mention no one argues and everyone loves them? Yes? N’kay. Just checkin.

The new Tinker Bell movie, Secret of the Wings, does not disappoint. An adorable story about friendship and triumph. You would probably be surprised to hear that Tinker Bell discovers her long lost (spoiler alert!) … sister Periwinkle! I know, isn’t that adorable?!?

The entire movie is all about the power of family and sisterhood.

And here’s something really cool about the movie… The production crew enlisted the help of a noted twin-study expert. Hearing the incredible stories of long-lost twins reuniting, and viewing footage of twins meeting for the first time, was extremely helpful in developing how Tinker Bell and Periwinkle react to each other, both physically and emotionally. That is seriously awesome.

Polkabilly! | Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern Culture

Polkabilly! | Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern Culture | Historic Wisconsin | Scoop.it

The work offers a freewheeling blend of continental European folk music and the songs, tunes, and dances of Anglo and Celtic immigrants. Polkabilly has enthralled American musicians and dancers since the mid-19th century. From West Virginia coal camps and east Texas farms to the Canadian prairies and America's Upper Midwest, scores of groups have wed squeezeboxes with string bands, hoe downs with hambos, and sentimental Southern balladry with comic "up north" broken-English comedy, to create a new and uniquely American sound.

Freedom Train North from the Wisconsin Historical Society Press

Freedom Train North from the Wisconsin Historical Society Press | Historic Wisconsin | Scoop.it

People running from slavery made many hard journeys to find freedom - on steamboats and in carriages, across rivers and in hay-covered wagons. Some were shot at. Many were chased by slave catchers. Others hid in tunnels and secret rooms. But these troubles were worth it for the men, women, and children who eventually reached freedom. "Freedom Train North" tells the stories of fugitive slaves who found help in Wisconsin.
