Its a Big Big World: Safe and Sound
“It’s a Big Big World” takes place in the beautiful World Tree, set in a rain forest, where Snook, A charismatic sloth, lives with his diverse group of animal friends. Together they investigate the world around them and discover how different things live, grow and change. This patented “Shadowmation” technique combines puppetry and computer graphics to bring the characters and their environment to life.
This DVD is a compilation of five episodes of the children’s television show “It’s a Big, Big World”. The puppet characters are endearing as each one has its own personality and quirks that range from an ant-eater that doesn’t eat ants to a frog that is afraid of bees. The quality is superb and the lessons about nature and the environment are wonderful.
This DVD teaches five lessons about how to stay “Safe and Sound”. A few include: listening when others warn about potential danger, being careful around unfamiliar plants, and how bones are connected and heal when broken. This DVD was very clean with only one minor thing to point out. One character, a monkey named Oko, is referred to as a healer. He doesn’t do anything more than put a sling on an arm, but that reference is worthy of mention.
Dove happily approves “It’s a Big, Big World: Safe and Sound” as a wonderful movie for family- friendly viewing.
