Kids are kind of the kings and queens of asking questions — and a new series from PBS Kids aims to help them find the answers.
Premiering on Sept. 7, Elinor Wonders Why encourages kids to ask questions and use science to find the answers. Elinor is a curious bunny who lives in Animal Town and goes on adventures with her friends Ari the bat and Olive the elephant. When they see something they don’t understand — like why birds have feathers or how ants can build giant anthills — they use science inquiry and engineering design to figure it out.
The one-hour premiere on Monday will contain stories about using natural camouflage during hide-and-seek, a costume parade, different types of plants in different environments, and a colorful bake sale inspired by bees.
