    My kids are 4 & 6, so too young to watch Avatar. I'd like them to have an idea of what Pandora is before we go. Does anyone know of any books, etc that would be appropriate for them? Thank you!

    Perhaps just show them a clip or trailer from the movie? My DS watched the scene where the warriors are paired with the banshee so he understood FoP a little better. He still has no idea what the movie is about, really, and he still enjoyed the scenery in Pandora.

    We let our son watch a couple clips of the movie on Youtube. Our daughter was too young. Even if we hadn't watched anything, they would have still be totally amazed. My kids absolutely loved looking around, especially at night.

    Show them some commercials or promo material.

    At your children's ages, I'd take them to a botanical garden/arboretum or natural history museum with a rain forest setting. Perhaps borrow a book with color photographs from the library; I'm sure a librarian can point you in the right direction. An art museum with an Impressionistic collection is another possibility and Kate and the Impressionists is a great book for those ages.

    If you are going to Pandora at night you can get them excited about the bioluminescent glow under the black lights. We had our kids wear a few neon and white items and they loved walking around under the special lights to make themselves glow!

    Tim Tracker is our favorite kid friendly youtuber and he has several videos posted about Pandora that you could show your kids to get them interested.

    We let out kids watch segments of the movie that correspond to the rides. Like the scene where Jake flies the banshee.

    My 6 year old has never seen Avatar movie but absolutely loved the land. We went for the 1st to that land in January and it was the one thing she asked to do on our return trip this August. My point being - I don’t think you need to do anything to get them excited... they will love it.
