New videos begin Mondays this May at vermontpbs.org
May 3-31 — VIRTUAL—The flowers are blooming, the bees are buzzing, and Mister Chris is singing! This May welcomes back the Emmy-award winning program “Mister Chris and Friends” with a series of five short, 4-minute videos all about routine. Join Mister Chris, Wishing Well, and their new friend Elephant as they celebrate daily routines.
“Helping children learn and grow, and bringing them smiles and joy, is core to the mission of Vermont PBS,” said Steve Ferreira, CEO of Vermont PBS. “It’s been a challenging year for all of us, and we are so glad to offer families with young children a chance for more time with Mister Chris.”
Each Monday this May, a new video will guide children and their families through special daily moments: waking up, brushing teeth, washing hands, cleaning up, and going to bed. This video shorts series welcomes Elephant, a new friend who joins Mister Chris for these activities. Each video has a new original song and features a peek into lives and routines in our community thanks to participation from viewers.
“Routine helps children process what they feel, see, touch and hear each day. Our hope is that these videos help little ones engage with five special everyday moments in a time when many of their routines have been disrupted,” said Chris Dorman. “And we hope our new friend, Elephant, helps families smile, giggle, and maybe even shed a joyful tear or two together.”
Videos will be available to watch at vermontpbs.org/misterchris, where families can also watch full episodes of seasons one and two of “Mister Chris and Friends.”
