Mister Chris and his friends follow the journey of a raindrop. We travel from the top of a mountain, down a river and to the lake, just like a real raindrop does.

Episode 6: Stars
It's the annual farm camping trip and all our farm family friends are going camping to spend a night under the stars! We learn about stars and use the new information to write a lullaby. We also meet a painter friend who teaches us more about darkness and light. Then on our camping trip, we sing songs around the campfire.
