Elinor Wonders Why is a new series coming this September to WITF and PBS Kids.
This animated series for preschoolers aims to encourage children to follow their curiosity, ask questions when they don’t understand and find answers using science inquiry skills.
The main character Elinor, the most observant and curious bunny rabbit in Animal Town, introduces kids ages 3-5 to science, nature and community through adventures with her friends Ari, a funny and imaginative bat, and Olive, a perceptive and warm elephant.
As kids explore Animal Town, they meet all kinds of interesting, funny, and quirky characters, each with something to teach us about respecting others, the importance of diversity, caring for the environment, and working together to solve problems.
Elinor Wonders Why comes to WITF in September. A new PBS Kids schedule begins September 7 and will be posted to WITF’s website soon.
