Nothing like The Present

I enjoyed this short video.

I also enjoyed showing it to my family, watching their reactions, and discussing it.

It is no wonder that it won so many prizes at film festivals. It is simple and it tells a good story.

It also does not shove messages down your throat and is instead designed to provoke thought. There are several potential takeaways, but it does not make them explicit. It draws them out from you, and in the process, you learn to think and to articulate your thoughts.

Therein is a lesson or reminder for teachers.
