You may know that we LOVE the Carl R. Sams books. I have blogged about them here and here. But we had never seen the movies. When a colleague of mine recommended the movies I knew I had to check them out.
I am SO excited to be doing a review and GIVEAWAY of all THREE of the Carl R. Sams movies!
Stranger in the Woods, First Snow in the Woods and Stranger in the Woods
So we started this morning out with Lost in the Woods. The book, in case you haven't read it, is a photographic fantasy about a little fawn that is all alone in the woods waiting for his mom. The pictures are absolutely amazing and the story is adorable. The movie is equally as incredible!
There are songs, tons of video photage of wild animals, hilarious characters and great information about the woods and the animals that live there. The wildlife photage alone is to make this movie a win but then the songs, story and characters just make it even more endearing. Even I was cracking up from the jokes told by a hilarious racoon and some very silly frogs. The narrator of the story is a turtle and all of the animals have adorably funny voices.
One of my favorite parts of these movies is that the movement is slow or in real time and because of all the real life photage even Avery can watch these. She loved them. They are short too, just about 30 minutes each, so the shorter attention span of a two year old is still held for the whole thing. I love the idea of something both girls can watch and both equally love!
Sam and Avery were both captivated by this movie! And so was I.
We are headed on a little road trip today so no time to watch and review the other two (those will be coming later this week!) but the GIVEAWAY starts TODAY for all three movies. One lucky reader will win ALL THREE MOVIES!
