Here's what our kids had to say: "Shows us how it is to really live in Ethiopia." "It is interesting." They like how the kids in the film look happy and are playing. "I like learning about geography." "I like to learn about different cultures." Even though it was purely educational, they show interest all the way through. "I like the music in the background." "It is cool that it is narrated by a boy." "I like that it is a real documentary and shows how people dress and work." "I didn't know that Ethiopia had grass because TV never shows that part. I like seeing a better view of it." Before the film some of the kids said they thought Ethiopia was just "poor and sad because they don't live like we do in the US." After, they were interested in learning more about other countries. "It wasn't how I had pictured Ethiopia in my mind." Kids are stimulated to discussion after viewing and verbally express learning a lot from the film, from history to geography to how people live in Ethiopia.
