"Learning with the Movies is an exceptionally informative and concise guide for using movies as a supplementary educational tool. Categorization and cross referencing make it user-friendly, and the printed format is easy to read with plenty of space to make notes. Annotations are brief and descriptive without unnecessary detail or giving away the story. In my opinion, the greatest strength of the book is Holland 's insight into the quality of a film, not only for its content and educational relevance but the work's integration of music, dance, costuming and visual effects that enhance the movie's appeal and application. Although this book is clearly an ideal tool for home schoolers, this is an outstanding resource for anyone seeking to utilize film media for instructional purposes." —Dr. Stephanie Tingler,
