Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animated barnyard animals encounter everyday situations that raise a "question of the day." Their problem solving is similar to the standard scientific inquiry "asking, testing, and finding a way." The characters focus is on science and nature teaching the program's preschool audience about the world and about how to go about answering everyday questions. The series carefully builds the child viewer's knowledge by offering a question and then little by little adding to the information necessary to answer that question.
