This is the second film in the collection Seasons in the Life of Ludovic. Here the bear cub is playing. Magical thinking governs Ludovic's world as he reigns over his menagerie of paper animals and their jungle home. In his improvised Africa, Ludovic goes from one surprise to another until the animals help themselves to the surprise brought by his mother. When they refuse to obey him, Ludovic doesn't want to play anymore. He bangs the door and pouts. But children's fights don't last. Reconciliation is not far off, especially when there is a snack to be shared by everyone. (See also Ludovic - The Snow Gift.)

This film explores themes of sharing, mutual assistance and apology. By analyzing the actions of the characters, a parallel can be drawn between their behaviour and that of students. How should one act in various situations of conflict? This animated film can also inspire a multidisciplinary activity blending language skills with biology and the arts. It can also be a good springboard to a research project on animals.
