Looking for a small dose of comfort and cheer to counteract the darkness of your news feed? There’s no age restriction on appreciating this charming collection of uplifting animated shorts that highlight the power of love, friendship, and collaboration. It’s also a fun way to share the pure joy of film and storytelling with your youngest family members. When a feisty fox and a pushy pigeon battle over an ice cream cone in The Fox and the Pigeon (Michelle Chua, Canada 2019, 6 min), they find an unexpected common enemy and a shared mission to save their dessert—and their own story. Based on the picture book by Julia Donaldson, The Snail and the Whale (Max Lang & Daniel Snaddon, UK 2019, 27 min) tells the tale of a tiny snail who is desperate to see the world beyond its small seaside home. When the little mollusk is invited to hitch a ride on the tail of a huge humpback whale, the unlikely pair embark on an amazing global adventure. In The Most Magnificent Thing (Arna Selznick, Canada 2018, 22 min), a spunky little girl receives her very own tool kit, and her creativity and resourcefulness kick into high gear as she sets her sights on building the most magnificent thing imaginable for her canine best friend. In What’s My Superpower? (Justin Heymans, Canada 2019, 10 min), Nalvana feels like all of her friends have some type of superpower and wonders if she might be the only kid in town without a special talent—until her mom helps her recognize her own unique gift, which was right in front of her along. When a teacher receives a sweet card with a cryptic message from one of her students, in For Estefani, Third Grade, Who Made Me a Card (Jordan Bruner, US 2019, 3 min), she is inspired to make sense of its seemingly nonsensical note. Age 5+
