What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this Disney classic has positive messages for kids about friendship and finding family in unexpected places. There are some scary and/or upsetting scenes, such as the final battle between Baloo (a bear) and Shere Khan (a tiger), but there's also lots of humor and catchy songs.
Families can talk about the music. What was your favorite song? What do Baloo's "Bare Necessities" song and "Hakuna Matata" from The Lion King have in common?
How does Baloo's love of good music get him into trouble?
Why does Bagheera worry when he finds out Baloo and Mowgli have teamed up?
