When you become a parent, no job is more important, complex, consuming, everlasting, exhausting, awesome, satisfying, gross, fun, and rewarding. It’s an epic roller coaster ride and an experience that’s impossible to sum up because you never know what’s around the corner and you never stop being a parent — ever.

It’s only natural to want to pass down to your child the postcards of life that you’ve received (and sent) and their most important lessons; if not to protect, to inform. We are, after all, raising the future stewards of society, humanity, the environment, and the planet. Why not equip them with all we’ve learned so far?

Making choices for the mini-you(s) in your life can be difficult. As always, OGP is looking out for its Green Monsters by cutting through the virtual noise so that you can make conscious choices related to your green lifestyle! Below are five mainstream animal-friendly movies for your animal-friendly family! We strongly suggest viewing these movies before watching them with your little ones because ultimately, you’re the boss.

Read the list here: http://www.onegreenplanet.org/animalsandnature/5-animal-friendly-movies-for-your-animal-friendly-family/

There are some great movies here! I know Fern Gully had a huge effect on me when I was growing up and I still love it today. smiley.gif

No problem! Movies like this are great for teaching kids about compassion for other species at an early age, I know watching Babe had a big effect on me when I was young.

You didn't ask for suggestions but I just wanted to say that I watched Ratatouille yesterday, and I quite enjoyed how it made a point of setting humans and animals on equal standing and showing that we all have strengths, needs and wants. So for a very family-friendly and easy to understand movie for the younger ones, that's one I'd recommend.

I loved Finding Nemo! When I was a kid I loved Fern Gully, I watched I think a million times, it had a huge impact on me. It got me to think more about the environment and pollution. It was such a great movie,

Gotta put Babe in that line up!

And there was a movie probably from the 90's my son loved. A boy found a baby dragon and raised him and then had to protect him from being sold to an amusement park. I think it was Dragonworld.


Any thought on Secondhand Lions? I can't remember the whole movie other than I liked it and cried.
