October's Sanity Saver is a savoury little ocular treat! Les Grandes, Grandes Vacances is an animated series found on Netflix but originally aired for France 3. It is about a group of children in a small town in France set before, during and after World War II.
The story focuses mainly on one Parisian family, as the father sets off to join the French resistance, the mother goes to Switzerland to recover from illness and the children are sent to live with their grandparents in the country.
It is a griping story with beautiful animation showing WWII from children's eyes. My daughter may not yet be interested in television but I am excited to show this to her once she is.
Check it out (showing on UK Netflix now).
