This episode is a nice example of our approach to our curriculum combining Social Development and Critical Thinking /Problem Solving. Our character Pom Pom is a 'Hero in Training', so our audience learns with him as he is learning about his world. In this episode, the theme of 'Facing Your Fears' is dealt with as Pom Pom relieves May's fears by asking questions. Because the animation has a lot of heart, our audience takes in both the theme and curriculum in a memorable way. It is the emotional content that makes the connection, that in a nutshell is our approach to making educational programming an active experience for our audience.
