What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Disneynature's Earth Day-timed documentary Wings of Life explains the importance of flowers and the earth's greatest pollinators: bees, birds, bats, and butterflies. Narrated by Meryl Streep, the documentary follows the journey of these pollinators, some of whom travel amazing distances to pollinate a very specific flower. There is a teensy bit of wildlife violence (a spider web traps prey, and a few birds fight for the claim on a particular flower), but otherwise nature-loving young viewers will enjoy a look at nature's unsung heroes, and teachers can use the Disney-created educator guide as a tool alongside the feature.
