Youll never look at a squirrel the same way again
Review by Huckleberry on 08/14/21 review stating Youll never look at a squirrel the same way again
We watched this program when it originally ran on the Nature channel over a year ago and still talk about it so we have to buy it. It is so entertaining, informative and hysterically funny. It gives a whole new dimension to watching squirrels now that we know what their up to. Any age of people would enjoy it, from 4 to 104.

i have bought animal videos in the past they just gather dust on the shelf. However it will be different with this one. I will share it as often as possible with others. I will also do my best to raise money to support the efforts to save this precious animal from extinction !! G, DeMay

Beautifully Done Show!
Review by Cheryl P. on 07/17/20 review stating Beautifully Done Show!
I found this to be one of the best done programs on horses and their history. The photography was exceptional as well as the narration. The passion of the Dr. Thompson for horses made it all the better. He brought information about breeds I have never heard of. I thoroughly enjoyed it and Im buying a copy for my best friend as we spent much of our childhoods on the back of a horse. Im positive it bring b her much joy to see this.

I think they are a wonderful way to learn about the world around us as well as to see things that we might not otherwise have the opportunity to see. Such is the case with the PBS documentary Sex, Lies and Butterflies.” – She Scribes
