A Letter To David Attenborough

Ever since she was four years old, my daughter has been wanting to write a letter to David Attenborough.

She has this picture hanging up on her bedroom wall.

David Attenborough is an English broadcaster, naturalist, and popularizer of science. He has been on the air for 60 years, traveling all over the world and bringing the stories of the animals of the planet to millions of people. He is the creator of shows such as "Life on Earth", "Planet Earth", "The Frozen Planet", and many more. Here in the United States, his nature documentaries are narrated by people like Oprah Winfrey or Sigourney Weaver. However, it is David Attenborough who has spent a lifetime studying, admiring, finding, and sharing the stories of these animals and their habitats. He is a legend among naturalists and nature enthusiasts, considered a national treasure in Britain, and Kat's all time favorite film maker.
