She lives among a dozen assorted characters, including her fairy best friends, Opal and Jasper, a garden elf, a wood nymph, possum, bats, other fairies, rats, a small colony of fleas, a lizard and her arch-rival, Saphira, who is also her fairy cousin. While Pearlie is very likable, she is a bit of a busy-body who likes to arrange things according to over-ambitious plans that ultimately get her in trouble. She gets along with everyone so, ultimately, every problem is solved and Pearlie learns a lesson. However, her greatest challenges are usually presented by her one enemy, the bully and diva Saphira. Fortunately, Pearlie rises to Saphira's challenges, not with meanness, but by outwitting her. Overall, learning is a constant process for Pearlie because she has big responsibilities, taking care of an entire little community, but she is indomitable and tenacious and ends up preserving order and happiness in Jubilee Park.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS is a show that features the most adventuresome teacher on the planet, Ms. Frizzle and her group of students who dutifully follow her approach to education-by taking magical field trips to learn about anything that interests her or them. All the students are curious, but with each one, there is often a personal problem that needs solving and the field trip has a way of dovetailing with the personal challenge to get everything all worked out. The class has been on 52 field trips, traveling in a magic bus that can transform its shape and power source, so it can travel through any environment, from the bottom of the ocean to outermost space. Ms. Frizzle can handle it all, from driving the bus, navigating unfamiliar terrain, to guiding the children's learning through inquiry. She is undeterred and rarely discouraged and expects no less from her students. Ms. Frizzle is amazingly understanding and permissive in her approach and the children are ambitiously curious about the world as a result. It's not just the bus that's magic.
