Axel: The Biggest Little Hero
Teaches Children a Life Lesson!
My kids (5&6) loved the movie! and as a mom I was very excited that they watched the whole movie because it teaches children a great life lesson; Working together makes you stronger!
Throught the years I have taught my children to work as hard as they can to be their best in everything they do. My boys are very close in age, only 18 months apart, so I have always told them to work together as a team and although just like Axel they both want to be “The Heroe” I told them they can both be BIGGER heroes if they join forces, I told them , being a hero it’s also about helping others and let them help you.
Axel, wants to be a hero for everyone in his search for the cactus, “Bonta”. And just like a lot of people, he thinks he should do it all by himself to be the hero, but his little friend Juno wants to help him so he tags along with him. Axel and Juno learned a lot about themselves on their journey including, the importance of being a team, sharing and trust.
