We've been told dd is gifted and talented by the health visitor but I'm not sure if its too early to tell?

Anyway regardless, like any parent I'd like to encourage any interests she has and at the moment it's nature. She wants to know every single fact about everything to do with animals in particular. I've bought her some nature books which she loves but I thought it might be nice to watch some short documentaries together. Are there any programmes anyone can recommend or any sets of DVDs? She is 3. Thanks so much for any help.

Planet Earth? Our DD loved this.

I think any Attenborough docs are great for any children - the current Africa series has loads of brilliant animal shots of giraffes, elephants etc and is divided into short sections so good for small children. That penguin programme is good and ds enjoyed watching it (for a minute at a time!) and he likes Frozen Planet too and recognises polar bears from it now.
