Planet Earth

I am not a big fan of the television, and for the most part my kids do not watch movies with the exception of the occasional treat with a babysitter or when they are sick. That said, there is one DVD I highly recommend if you don't already have it. A few years ago the crocodile hunter received the Planet Earth set from his godmother. What amazing footage! The kids love it (even the queen age 4 will sit there for as long as I will let her :) and it is a great series to watch if you are doing any kind of earth science or geography studies. It of course approaches things from a Darwinian evolutionary point of view, so you might want to be prepared to have those discussion with your kids. Beyond that, there is nothing I have ever seen that communicates the sheer beauty and wonder of God's creation.
