Wouldn't it be interesting to have a pet lion? But then, to do right by the animal you'd have to introduce it back into the wild. This is the true story of the domestication and successful reintroduction into the wild of the lion named Elsa. The film is based on the book by Joy Adamson.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below one of the discussion question from the Learning Guide to Born Free.
Did Mrs. Adamson do the right thing in raising the lion cub herself rather than sending it to a zoo?
The Learning Guide to the film Born Free contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
