Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Zou is a French series based on the Zou books by Michel Gay. Each episode explores the kind of learning issues that emerge from everyday encounters in the life of a preschool child. If Zou plays his drums too loudly, how can he learn to play them softly. If Zou wants a car but only has a cardboard box, how can he transform it? If Zou lost his friend's favorite airplane, how does he explain? These are big issues in the mind and life of a preschool child and Zou demonstrates how to have fun, ask for help, listen to advice, and try different solutions until he can commit to the strategy that works. The show says it, shows it, and does it in the embedded and naturally occurring lesson within each episode.
