Bet you thought National Geographic tapes would make kids crave Wayne’s World. Well, the fifth graders at Silver Ridge Elementary School in Silverdale, Wash., are crowing over Geographic’s series Really Wild Animals

”It made me happy to see animals run freely, instead of in cages. I recommend these videos even to people who don’t have a thing for animals.” -Margaux Dupille

”The movies made me want a wild animal of my own! Wonders Down Under made me feel like I could reach out and touch a koala bear.” -Joey Johnson

”I liked these. My favorite part was when it told about chimpanzees and how they act like people.”
