Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Parents need to know that this preschool series stars the characters of Richard Scarry's beloved children's books. As the young characters solve mysteries, they encourage kids to think critically about the world around them and introduce them to basic scientific concepts like making observations, analyzing evidence, and testing theories. Huckle and his friends always demonstrate admirable traits like kindness, respect, and sincerity. In other words, this show is a great choice for preschoolers -- and perhaps even their parents, who might remember Scarry's characters (in book form, anyway) from their own childhood.
