Celebrating Earth Day with Frozen Planet ...R&G!



Happy Belated Earth Day All!  Did you do anything special at your house to celebrate?  It was rainy here so our plan to pick up trash in the neighborhood was foiled (we will do another day because, remember, EVERYday is Earth Day!).  We did do something special though....the family and I had a Planet Earth Earth Day Party!  To celebrate the release of the absolutely phenomenal DVD, Planet Earth the family and I were treated to some special Earth Day fun!

We started off with a pizza party and then Little R donned a penguin hat to get the party started.  Actually, Little R has been wearing this on most days since it arrived!

We  hunkered down in the living room to enjoy some penguin, whale and polar bear cookies and lots of popcorn and we popped in the first DVD.  All I can say is WOW!!!  Have you heard of Frozen Planet?  It is absolutely breathtaking.  Here is the scoop in case you are not familiar....


Overview


Following the Discovery Channel premiere in North America on March 18, 2012 and just in time for Earth Day, this astonishing and breathtaking seven part series is narrated by the legendary Sir David Attenborough, hailed by The Telegraph as “the father of natural history television.” Join Emmy® Award winning Executive Producer Alastair Fothergill and the team behind the groundbreaking series Planet Earth as they take you on the ultimate adventure into a breathtaking landscape. This is the Poles as you have never seen them, and may never see them again.

A BBC/Discovery Channel co-production four years in the making, Frozen Planet is ambitious and epic in scale and provides the ultimate portrait of our earth’s Polar Regions, capturing the power of natural elements and the fragile, jaw-dropping beauty of scenery unlike anywhere else in the world. This landmark high definition series brings to the screen the frozen wilderness of the polar region for what could be the last time before they change forever.

Featuring the incredible wildlife cinematography that made Planet Earth a worldwide success, Frozen Planet has taken new technology to the most extreme and remote parts of our planet capturing groundbreaking imagery above and below the ice.

Encounter spectacles that few of us will ever witness first hand. Go deep under the sea-ice into a magical world of giants, plunge into the heart of an erupting polar volcano and fly to the South Pole across the Antarctic icecap – the largest concentration of ice on earth – retracing the steps of the great Polar explorers.

Get closer than ever before to the lives of our best loved and most charismatic animal characters – polar bears, penguins, wolves and orcas, and witness the most extraordinary examples of survival against the odds that can be found anywhere on our planet.


I can't say enough about Frozen Planet the entire family was riveted by the sheer beauty of the world we live in.  My son "W" kept saying "Is this real?" and "Did this really happen?".  It honestly looks too beautiful to possibly be real. The kids delighted in the antics of the penguins and were mesmerized by the massive whales.  There was a bit with wolves and a bison that was a little tough for W (the other 2 were fine) to watch (not at all gory but the bison was taken down by the wolves) but it just gave us the opportunity to talk about nature in it's true form.

The entire collection of Frozen Planet continued to mesmerize not only my husband and me but the kids too.  The picture quality was flat out amazing and learning about this part of the world and the creatures who inhabit it was fascinating.  Frozen Planet is MUST SEE for the entire family.  You can purchase Frozen Planet now by clicking HEREDEAL ALERT:  Reviewed by Mom readers get 10% off their order until May 30th by entering FP312!
