Rated TV-Y7

Great educational film was well-made. Had some violence and peril the main character was in peril sometimes in the jungle but nothing too crazy.

Gorgeous history of Amazon discovery

This is as much a biopic of Evolutionary Biologist Dr Henry Bates as a beautiful tour of the Amazon. It's heavily focused on the discoveries of variations of species of butterflies, and how this effected Darwin's theories. Our 5 year old was enchanted by the bugs and animals, and our 9 year old loved the adventure. SPOILER: One slightly scary bit as a big wave hits his boat. One sad bit as he gets too ill with malaria, and has to return to England. I think it would be fine for a 4 year old, if they have the attention span for it. (Though probably wait for video unless you need to beat the heat)
