Episode 2: New Song

Mister Chris has written a new song and wants to sing it to his friends, but everyone is too busy with farm chores to listen. He helps them complete their chores so they will have time to attend the big, big concert and hear his new song.

Episode 3: Seeds

In this episode, we wish with our friend Wishing Well that we could grow bigger…right now! Mister Chris will work with our farmer friend, Christine, to learn more about what a seed needs to grow, including time.

Episode 4: Water

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 5: Wind

This episode is all about flying! We learn about why we need wind to fly, and what other factors make flight possible. We meet some amazing feathered friends.

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.
