Season Overview

This season will focus on cultural diversity as the cast visits Buffy Sainte-Marie at her home on the island of Kauai of Hawaii. Jon Stone said, "Going to Hawaii was very good for us because it is a multi-ethnic society and one that provides an ocean-oriented milieu that we have never had on the series."[1] Three of the children who participated in the Hawaii shows are direct descendants of King Kaumualii, and two are descendants of King Kamehameha.[2]

The curriculum will also emphasis on higher-order reading skills, such as verbal blending and letter sounds. In addition, this season will introduce basic principles of health and nutrition, dental care, personal hygiene, pre-science, and the environment.
