Kids are born scientists. They poke and probe, try and fail. It’s how they study and understand the world around them. For parents who believe that learning happens only in a scripted and structured environment, this show is for you.
With nary a bell or a whistle, magical muppet-like oh-so-curious eebee lights a path of discovery. Kindly and softly, the puppeteer demonstrates concentration, interest, and experimentation. Never intrusive, always responsive, the puppeteer lets learning unfold.
Initiating a simple rhythm, echoing another, the adults serve as gentle guides, genuine participants, and admiring students.
Those who may think it hypocritical that these lovely hands-on lessons are screen based will quickly rid themselves of any misgiving. Here, viewers will learn how grownups and children can learn together. And boy, is that fun.
