Thank you to Disney Films and ABC for inviting me on this press junket for Cars 3, Born In China, The Toy Box, and Puppy Dog Pals.
There’s something about the beauty of nature. It’s something the whole family can enjoy, and if your kids are anything like mine, nature brings up lots of questions. Disneynature films are always a fun experience for the whole family, but it seems like the kids tend to come home excited and full of wonder. Watching Born In China will create the same experience. Here are 3 reasons kids should see Disneynature’s Born In China.
Animal Stars Aplenty
Born In China is pretty unique because we get to learn about 5 animals in one film! China is home to many magical creatures, but we get to peek into the lives of snow leopards, pandas, and chiru, golden snub-nosed monkeys. Cranes are a special guest star of the movie, too.
Family Dynamics In The Wild
When it comes to Disney films, it’s all about the story. This also rings true with all Disneynature films, including Born In China. Within this movie, we learn about the family dynamic for 4 characters: YaYa and MeiMei (pandas), TaoTao (golden snub-nosed monkey) and Dawa (snow leopard). I learned quite a few lessons while watching their family dynamics: how to let go as a parent, growing pains as a tween/teen, and sacrificing yourself for your family. Your kids will learn many more from following these families, that may seem very similar to theirs.
How To Support A Cause
You definitely need to take your family to see Born In China the first weekend it is released, April 21st. Why? Because it’s Earth Day weekend, and because if you go see the movie opening week (April 21-27, 2017), it will benefit the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). This is a great time to show your kids how they can be an advocate for animals all around the world. Based on opening-week attendance, Disneynature, via the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, will make a contribution to the World Wildlife Fund to help protect wild pandas and snow leopards in China.
Be sure to take your kids to see Disneynature’s Born In China on April 21st, Earth Day weekend. And if you’d love to do a fun activity before or after you see the film, check out this cute Born In China Paper Plate Craft from my friend Barb!
