Teaching Kids the Importance of Nature
Movies that portray nature in an important and key aspect to the plots and that I believe have impact in our society are those targeted to kids, for example The Lorax. In the Lorax, we are introduced to a little creature who’s whole mission is to “speak for the trees.” In that universe people lack the understanding that when there is greed when it comes to nature, no one ends up winning. The main character, the Once-ller tells the story of how trees disappeared due to his greed of cutting down as many as he can see in order to make sweaters. Movies like these that place emphasis on the environment and on preserving it are important as they encourage kids to care for nature and everything that encompasses it. For example its animals and its flora. Movies like these are important as they portray nature in a mysterious, astonishing and overall important way to the youth.
