Overstreet's Favorite Films for Children

By request: This is just a first run at a list of my film recommendations for children. It needs work, but it's a start. I focused on films that were made *for* a young audience. If I were raising children, I would have a very different list for them — I'd be exposing them to films for grownups as well.
