Our Journey to the Alaskan Wilderness with Disneynature's Bears

Disneynature's Bears Blu-ray Combo Pack, which released on August 12th takes the whole family on an epic journey to the Alaskan wilderness. We enjoyed watching this heartwarming, spectacular film that showcases a year in the life of a bear family, as two young cubs are taught life's most important lessons. My family and I enjoy watching Disneynature movies, as they give insight into the life of wild animals and allow us to see the world in a different perspective.

Win 1 of 5 Tickets for a Family of 4 to Spend a Fun Filled Day at Safari Niagara

Safari Niagara in Stevensville, Ontario is a wonderful attraction to spend a day with family and friends. We had a fun filled, adventurous day enjoying the attractions at Safari Niagara. Since our visit last summer, the attraction has changed quite a lot and I was very impressed that people’s opinions were considered and they have made it more fun and enjoyable for everyone. Now the admission tickets cover all the fun at the park, and parking is free.

We Had a Wild Day at #AfricanLionSafari + a chance for you to Win tickets and take your family

My family and I love going to the African Lion Safari located in Cambridge, Ontario. We think this is one of the best attractions in Ontario. I have been to African Lion Safari over a half-dozen times since I was little and enjoy it each time. I am thankful that we have always been able to make wonderful memories each time we watch the shows and visit the 9km of Safari trail.

The Peaceable Forest: A Tale of Kindness to Animals


The Peaceable Forest is an ancient Indian Vedic tale about Kindness to Animals, written by Kosa Ely.  In this ancient parable from India was passed on to children through an oral tradition.  This story reminds children to be compassionate to all living creatures and respecting life.

In this story a forest-dwelling hunter learns that cruelty has consequences and that compassion has rewards.  When the hunter meets the wise man, Narada, "Do unto others as they would do unto you" takes on a very concrete meaning. The sage leads the hunter on an imagined journey in which the hunter becomes the hunted. When the hunter realizes his actions affect other living things, he has a change of heart and begins to live in peace with the animals he once pursued for fun and without reason.  My daughter said that her favourite part was in the end when the hunter becomes a good person and lived in a peaceful way.
Anna Johansson's richly detailed illustrations show the animal kingdom and enchanted forests with fine lines and luminous colors.  The Peaceable Forest is an inspiring picture book that illustrates flora and fauna native to India.  My children found this book to be colourful and fun to read.  The interesting pictures will attract young readers as they see the world in the perspective of the animals.  My son liked observing the pictures and asking questions regards to the characters' clothing and liked the picture of the hunter's stance when he was shooting the arrow.  
The beautiful and accessible message within The Peaceable Forest opens up conversations about kindness and nonviolence to all living things, which teaches children to respect life in all its forms.  After reading and looking through the book we can have meaningful conversations with our children about this philosophy.
