It's a lesson in thankfulness in this story about
a very blue berry. Madame Blueberry wants more stuff even though she
has everything she needs. She and her friends learn that "being greedy
makes you grumpy, but a thankful heart is a happy heart." Adult
comments: Excellent production: music is catchy, animation is flawless,
has brilliant colors and is very imaginative. Humorously teaches a
lesson about greed and thankfulness. Helps kids explore their
emotions. Contains unnecessary racial stereotyping. Kids comments:
Children learned that you don't need a whole lot of stuff to be happy.
They were amused when Madam Blueberry bought so many her house crashed.
They notice stereotypical representations of people of different
cultures. Loved the humor and the music.
