Arctic Tale product reviews

Set in the vast snow kingdom at the top of the world, Arctic Tale is a real-life adventure from the people who brought you March of the Penguins. Join narrator Queen Latifah as she follows two very different arctic creatures, Nanu the polar bear cub and Seela the walrus pup, through exciting and harrowing struggles for survival.

Armed only with their natural instincts and mothers' guidance, these inspiring animals face countless trials and challenges in a beautiful icebound world that is rapidly melting beneath them.

Relaxing music and the soothing tones of Queen Latifah's voice lead you into this gentle, sweet, yet very informative tale of two youngsters growing up in a world of ice and snow. Nanu the polar bear cub, and Seela the walrus pup journey through the first few years of their lives in a difficult, challenging world where their environment is slowly changing, making it harder and harder to survive when food sources are scarce, and more challenging to catch as the ice takes longer to grow thick enough to move around on.
I wasn't too sure just how good it would be with Queen Latifah narrating, but her warmth and humour made for fun and interesting listening without taking over and distracting from the joy of just watching animals in their natural environment.
The documentary has a movie-like feel to it, and slides easily between Nanu's and Seela's separate stories throughout the film, with an enjoyable soundtrack that compliments things nicely. There are many moments that bring giggles at those gorgeous animal antics, along with moments where you're sitting on the edge of your seat, breath tightly held, waiting to see if disaster will strike, or whether it'll narrowly be avoided.
It was also great to see tips on how we can help to save the environment and the animals within it written on the cover and included on the DVD, along with the cover appearing to be made out of recycled materials- pity more covers couldn't be done like this!!!
An absolutely fantastic addition to any parent's documentary library, and one that both kids and adults will enjoy sitting down to watch-even those that aren't the greatest of animal fans, like my son who has to be quite strongly coaxed into watching anything nature-related. However, documentaries like this are helping to slowly change that.
