WIN- The Riddle In A Bottle DVD

I found the perfect DVD that appeals to both my boys and teaches them a little lesson about our earth as they watch it. Caleb loves Pirates and Nate love to solve riddles so this movie is a perfect fit for Family Movie night in our home.

The Riddle in a Bottle is a half-hour movie for children, which shares how life on earth is connected through moving water. It is also the movie that inspired the children’s book A Pirate’s Quest.

With a generous grant from the Save Our Seas Foundation, Sisbro Studios was able to purchase underwater camera equipment, and they spent a total of two years capturing beautiful aquatic footage from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans (and lakes and rivers in-between).

What is the movie about? Laura and Robert, a.k.a. โ€œThe Riddle Solvers,โ€ are two siblings who run a riddle-solving stand, where they solve riddles for 5ยข a piece. We follow them as they solve a mysterious riddle from the ocean that reaches them on an inland lake… in a message in a magic bottle.

As Laura and Robert try to solve the riddle, they receive three clues (via message in a bottle) from underwater creatures who each offer a different solution to the riddle . . . currents, tides or weather. The first story sweeps you into a vivid blue ocean where baby loggerhead sea turtles drift along the ocean currents under floating mats of sargassum algae. The second story takes you to the coastline, where daily life is based around the rhythm of the tides. The third story plunges you into a freshwater vernal pond, whose occupants depend on the heavy spring rains for survival.

Finally, The Riddle Solvers meet a one-legged pirate, who sings a song that helps pave the way to the riddle’s answer. This lively mix of mystery, music, humor and vivid animal footage is a perfect way for young children to understand how they are connected with water far away.
