How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

What does the narrator mean when he says, the closer you look the more surprises you find? What surprising discoveries does Davie make about himself and Golimyr?

What causes Davie to lose faith in himself? How is it restored? Are bravery and courage dependent on size? How are the qualities of forgiveness and compassion portrayed in this story?

James C. Christensen is a renowned fantasy artist. Many of his paintings include a fish either floating or flying. Can you find any examples of his trademark in this production?
