All children want to make sense of the world around them. These six films without dialogue build upon and develop children's natural interest in their surroundings. The beautiful images and thoughtful cinematography invite the viewer to share the wonder of two children as they investigate a variety of natural phenomena: the seasons, physical laws such as gravity, familiar living creatures, night, structures and their functions, and ecological relationships. They encourage students to look more carefully and to appreciate the fascinating complexity of their environment.
