Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pearlie recounts the weekly escapades of an optimistic, amiable fairy who has been appointed by Fairy HQ to maintain order in Jubilee Park. 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 via Saphira. Fortunetly, Pearlie rises to Saphira's challenges, not with meanness but by outwitting her. Overall, learning is a constant process of Perlie because she has big responsibilites.
