“Pluggin into Nature- Edward loves his video games and indoor time. One day he goes outside and discovers the natural world. He meets a chickadee, butterfly and frog who guide Edward on a path of outdoor fun and wellness. At the end of the show Edward helps to “plant up” the “neighbourwood.” Edward still loves his screen time but he also loves getting outside.”
