Watch more with these video collections:

A tender fairy tale about discovery and growing up, this is The Silence Beneath the Bark, Le silence sous l’écorce (2010), by Joanna Lurie. Read more about the film here

Lurie’s previously featured work, Partir (Leaving), explores similar themes.

And on that note, be sure to watch the film short Premier Automne by French animation studio Je Regarde.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
