An all-new season of Peep hatches in January on WGBH!
WGBH's Emmy Award-winning preschool science and math series Peep and the Big, Wide World is set to launch a new season in January, now airing every weekday on WGBH. Narrated by comedian/actress Joan Cusack, the series tracks the adventures of Peep, a newly hatched chick, Chirp, a smart and sassy robin, and Quack, an irascible, endearing duck.
Cusack, the mother of two young boys, marvels over the everyday science offered on the show and what it means to kids at home: "I've learned that just because you're four or five years old and still using a sippy cup doesn't mean you're not a scientist — I love this show! It inspires kids and lets me see the world through their curious eyes."
Each half-hour episode contains two animated stories highlighting specific science or math concepts, plus two live-action segments of real kids exploring science and math in everyday places. The series takes place in and around a large urban park — a place of great wonder and mystery, a place the characters call "the big wide world," a place they are forever eager to explore.
