We bought this DVD for homeschooling science. The best part is that the little ones (preK - 1st Grade) learn and enjoy while watching them for fun. At the same time, the older ones (2nd - 4th) learn so much in depth about the Monarch Life Cycle and Migration. So satisfying for both age groups at the same time. We can't say enough great things about this video.

We already had your bird movie and loved it. We pre-bought the Monarch movie and have been so happy with it. My son (and really all of us) have learned so much. We are so thankful to have nature videos to watch that give Glory to God.

Crowe's Nest Media has produced a masterpiece! This family faithfully gives all glory & praise to the Creator Who made the Monarch & He blessed them with opportunities to capture stunning footage. The children & I sat mesmerized watching the complete life cycle of the Monarch. The inclusion of Mr. Jules Poirier is a treat & a testament to God's faithfulness--we want to read his book about Monica the Monarch. We were blessed by hearing Kellie tell of the Lord bringing His creation, the Monarch butterfly to them to film when time was of the essence & the field was vast. Even the bloopers are God-honoring in that you see that this dvd did not come together in one flawless take, rather they each laugh at their mistakes & obviously enjoy their family members & those working with them. Absolutely delightful!!
