The BBC is teaching young kids to celebrate the changing seasons with “The Great British Year.” The series of short films based on the BBC One series of the same name will give show youngsters the magic of the seasons and how to appreciate the workings of nature.

“Aimed at four- to six-year-olds, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter encapsulate the essence of each of our UK seasons, and Four Seasons shows the stunning transition in our countryside through an entire year. Spring Babies shows birds working hard to make nests, incubate their eggs and rear their young in spring. Leaf Eaters shows the crack demolition squad of worms, fungi and slime moulds which break down the leaves in autumn.”
