An American Tail

Directed by Don Bluth

This beautifully animated film produced by Steven Spielberg tells the story of Fievel Mouskewitz and his family of Jewish mice who escape from Russia in the late 1800s and immigrate to the United States in search of freedom. This must-see film, perfect for kids ages 4 and up, is a delightful entry to family discussions about grandparents and great-grandparents who immigrated to America from Eastern Europe over a century ago.
