Stranger in the Woods


This is a snapshot of quiet harmony, a reminder that if we watch and listen closely, there is music and beauty and wonder all around us. Two snowdrifts introduce us to a world that busy, suburban people rarely get to witness – nature filled with life and song. The animals, trees, water, snow and leaves wake up one day to a stranger in their woods. This stranger is a snowman bearing gifts of food for them. They curiously accept this snowman into their world, not knowing that a couple of caring children are behind the yummy gifts that the snowman brings to them. The photography is incredible and the music is cute. Based on the best-selling book with the same name, this is a very fun movie to watch with children. It will appeal to your inner child!

Dove Review

This adorable and beautiful movie shows us many of the treasures that God desires of us: kindness, love, teamwork, and commitment. The snowdrift narrator considers everything in the woods to be his friend. He easily shares the telling of the story with other characters. The two children who created the snowman displayed teamwork and commitment to placing food for the animals every day until winter has passed. The photography illustrates the power and majesty of God’s creation, down to every snowflake being unique and spectacular.
