Amazing Series!!
Review by Jujubee on 07/17/20 review stating Amazing Series!!
Please dont let the previous reviewer who failed to vet the movie first for his kids deter you from these highly educational films. There is some violence or dark subject matter in each of them because he goes into the history of how these incredible structures came into human use. With some careful editing, for young kids, these are still incredibly informative and useful/interesting documentaries. My 4 year old loves to learn about the world and these did not disappoint.
