The greatest kid movie ever
21 March 2004 | by (Fort Macleod, Canada) – See all my reviews

I have watched this movie a lot i used to rent from the local library all the time. Its a great movie for any age. I have just recently bought it on DVD to keep the child memories alive in me a must see. When i watch this movie I think about the days that used to be.

The movie follows the same format as the TV show with Babar telling a bedtime story to his four children. Kids all over will love this movie even if they have never seen anything with Babar before.
