Boldly coloured and cleanly cut computer animation depicts this tale of a family with a giant carrot growing in the vegetable patch. It is only through teamwork that the family are able to uproot the giant carrot. Even the pets join in: the dog, the cat, even the pet mouse. Once the giant carrot is removed from the ground, all the family, animals included, celebrate by enjoying a hearty carrot soup. The teamwork is so successful that the film ends with the family and their animals stood on each other’s shoulders to reach a giant apple that hangs from the top of the tree. Themes of cooperation and the celebration of diversity are explicit, while the representation of food and gardening can be further developed in class discussion to explore sustainable development/climate change.
