Elinor Wonders Why

Mz. Mole's Glasses/Elinor Stops The Squish

Season 1, Episode 8 of 40

Ms. Mole's Glasses - When Ms. Mole forgets her glasses at school, Elinor and her friends follow her to return them. Ms. Mole can't see anything without her glasses! The kids travel throughout Animal Town, just missing Ms. Mole at every turn. During their travels, the kids realize Ms. Mole has been shopping and getting around using different senses. By the time they finally reach Ms. Mole and return her glasses, she's got all her shopping done without them. Cool! Elinor Stops the Squish - Elinor and her friends want to bring Ms. Mole a cupcake for her birthday, but they're worried it will get squished on the way to school. The kids find inspiration in nature when they observe how different animals/creatures stay safe using their shells as a defense mechanism. Elinor, Ari and Olive use this idea as inspiration to make a shell around the cupcake using a hard coconut. Because of the kids' hard work and ingenuity, the cupcake makes it all the way to school without being squished, just in time for Ms. Mole to enjoy her present. Yum!
