Babies….the Movie


While I’m on the subject of video/television programs….my 4 and 6-year-old loved watching “Babies”.   Mongolia, Tokyo, San Francisco and Namibia are the center of the film as it follows four babies through their first year of life.  My kids laughed along with the baby in Mongolia who pushed a stroller into the middle of an ox field and the Namibian baby who licked a dog.   I highly recommend this and was surprised at how much my kids enjoyed it.  The film prompted questions and helped open conversations about cultural differences. Do you know of any other films that  introduce the world to our kids in an entertaining and fun way? Please post if you do!


About the cultured kid

I've traveled, lived, worked and studied all over the world. Europe, North Africa, Central & South America, the Middle East and Asia. The more different the culture, the better! I'm determined to introduce my two boys to our multi-cultural world. Living in Washington, D.C. there are international festivals, parades and cultures right in our own backyard. I'll share with you our adventures around town and those that take us on international journeys. I'll also share ideas for introducing your family to foreign food, culture and community at home.
