The arrival of spring brings new life. A newborn fawn lies alone in the forest. Is it lost? Where is its mother? While the other animals are concerned, the fawn dismisses their worries insisting that its mother will return. He is correct. Things are not always what they seem. Shirley, a wise box turtle, explains this to Fernando Hernadofandavez, a very energetic raccoon who is searching for his brother, Hernando. You also meet other woodland creatures such as a tadpole wants to be a standup comedian, when he grows legs (lol).
This movie is filled with delightful and entertaining music and sounds that children really enjoy. The cinematography in this movie is excellent. The close-ups of plants and wildlife are so clear and vivid you feel like you are there in the woods as well. Nature lovers of all ages will thoroughly enjoy this beauty of this film.
This movie is suitable for all ages, with a concentration on kindergarten to 3rd grade. This entertaining movie is also educational and can also be used in a classroom, home school , library setting. Animal and season recognition, animals in their natural habitat, to concepts such as camouflage , and different ways animals care for their young can be integrated into lesson plans. Lost in the Woods is highly recommended for young children and for families. I Love It!
