A few weeks ago the family went to the The Discovery Museum and Planetarium in Bridgeport, CT as they were having a free visitors day to launch a weather balloon. Of course thanks to a certain boy’s nap we arrived at the museum in time to miss everything. However, I turned tragedy into triumph when I found a small theater. They were showing the 1959 classic Donald in Mathmagic Land. This 27- minute masterpiece features cranky Donald Duck as he learns about geometry and other mathematical practices. I loved the short film when I saw it in school and was psyched to watch it, the little guy cared not. I will chaulk it up to his three year old attention span and take solace in the fact that when he sees it when he is more sit stilly he will love it as well. Click here.
