Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. After bidding farewell to his Aunt Lucy in darkest Peru, Paddington Bear sails off and eventually finds himself alone in Paddington Station. The label around his neck reads simply, Please look after this bear. Thank You. When the Brown family takes him in, they get a lot more than they bargained for. Paddington is a stranger in a strange land and much of the charm of his adventures comes from his unique way of looking at the world. Many things others take for granted are exactly what he finds so fascinating and worthy of investigation. Paddington Bear has a knack for turning everyday life into an all out adventure. Helpful and curious, Paddington always puts his paws where he shouldnt and inevitably finds himself in sticky situations. He doesn't go looking for adventure, it just seems to find him.
