Cool the Climate can be a very helpful film to kids on climate change. The animation and characters are bright and colorful, the voice overs are very clear. It definitely suits a younger audience and teaches them things that they may not already know that are relevant to climate change.

This film is an explanatory film about climate change and how it works, different symptoms, and how to prevent it. It includes lots of songs that illustrate some of the common causes of climate change.

I love the bright colored animation and the characters. I like how it explains the causes of climate change, and gives examples. I like all the voiceover actors' voices except one, which is slightly grating. The animation and use of real features of the countries they talk about are excellent. The music is fun and well produced. The voice-over actors include Traylor Howard, Peter Giles, James Makawa, Brian Van Holt, Courtney Watkins, Angela Ledgerwood, Kate Hickey, Tiffany Lerman, The Ferrare family and the Thomopoulos family.

The message of this film is that it is really important to keep our planet clean, that climate change causes a lot of destruction to our world and a lot of things contribute to climate change. The call to action is that we need to step it up and save our planet.

I give Cool the Climate 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to ages 3 to 8. Reviewed by Julie S. and Tiana S., KIDS FIRST! Jurors.

Simon the Hippo and friends go on a song-filled adventure while learning about the world's changing climate, the role that carbon dioxide and methane play, and the good green habits we can all develop to help cool the climate. Along their way the animals find out about topics such as the Greenhouse Effect, the Food Chain, the "Three Rs" (Reducing, Reusing, Recycling), Composting, and Carbon Offsetting. Willing to face the climate crisis, the animal friends then take the steps to help cool the climate - and urge us humans to do the same!
