The Four Seasons / Les quatre saisonsThe Four Seasons / Les quatre saisonsThe Four Seasons / Les quatre saisons

This simple, delightful animation for small children is an excellent discussion starter on how the seasons affect our lives. At the first signs of spring, a little creature begins to investigate the other signs of life popping up around him. Summer approaches, and he discovers sunburn and celebration. With fall comes colour change, falling leaves and storms. Then a winter wind blows cold and snow across the land. As the wheel of the seasons turns, the creature and his companion undergo changes, too. Music and animation blend together in this unique film, thanks to an original score by B.C. composer Karel Roessingh.

Also, available in French: Les quatre saisons

Cette animation simple et merveilleuse pour enfants présente une excellente discussion sur l'effet des saisons sur nos vies. Le printemps débute et un petit personnage commence à découvrir les autres signes de vie qui surgissent autour de lui. L'été arrive et maintenant le personnage attrape un coup de soleil et vit une célébration. L'automne amène le changement des couleurs, la perte du feuillage ainsi que les tempêtes. Le vent d'hiver, ensuite, souffle la neige partout sur terre. Au fur et à mesure que la roue des saisons tourne, le petit personnage et sa compagne évoluent aussi. Ce film unique fusionne la musique et l'animation, grâce à la partition originale du compositeur canadien Karel Roessingh.
