For media educator

The fast-paced and humorous animation The Boss Baby hilariously turns the life of an ordinary baby family on its head. The familiar places of the home and the routines of a family with children take on exciting new meanings in the adventures of Tim the boy and the boss baby. The film encourages everyone to let their imagination run wild and indulge in play.

The point of view is from a child adjusting to a new family member, but the film also offers compassion for tired parents running the daily life of a small child. The film deals with the feeling of abandonment, but mainly the tone is optimistic and emphasizes the importance of caring. The story provides good ideas for discussing with the child about changes in family relationships, sibling relationships and the needs of different family members – and, of course, where babies really come from.
