Loving cultures traces back to my early childhood when I watched the show The Wild Thornberrys -a show about a family who travels the world filming documentaries and the experiences they have along the way.
I haven’t thought about them in years but the other night in my World Civilization class we were talking about Machu Picchu (an Inca site in Peru) and my mind jumped back to the Thornberrys, specifically Eliza who had a desire to see it. She encouraged me to have dreams about the places I wanted to visit and the experiences I hoped to have some day.
I think this show as great for children because it showed them adventures they couldn’t dream of at their age and it encouraged them to reach for the stars like Eliza. Who knows? Maybe I’ll have to watch some more of it!
