Series: Peep and the Big Wide World
The Emmy-winning animated series PEEP AND THE BIG WIDE WORLD gives wings to the innovative idea of teaching science to preschoolers. Wry and distinctive visual humor, charming plotlines and lovable characters, combined with a comprehensive science program, attract and engage kids three to five years old. Set in and around a pond, a bush and a tin can, the series follows a newly hatched chicken named Peep and his friends Chirp, a smart and sassy robin, and Quack, an endearingly egotistical duck. The curious trio embark on a series of wide-ranging adventures - from discovering shadows, to investigating mysterious tracks, to learning about gravity the hard way. Narrated by award-winning comedienne Joan Cusack, each episode contains two stories which highlight specific science concepts. In addition, two live-action shorts present real kids playing and experimenting with these concepts in their own "big wide worlds."
