By Movieguide® Contributor

Parents looking for a movie to watch with their nature-loving child but don’t want them to be bombarded with a political agenda will love this list. All too often, nature films target children with misinformation, but these movies are simply about the enjoyment of God’s creation. From classics like SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON to animated favorites like FINDING NEMO, kids can learn about the world around them, and parents can feel confident in the message. Use caution with young children, as some titles have moments of peril.

Amy and her father do not get along until a nest of baby goslings binds them together.
