The natural world is full of close resemblances in appearance or action. Are these mimicries a matter of shape? Patterns? Behaviors? Why do they occur? Are they really so similar? If we observe and think about commonalities, differences, and natural laws, we realize there are similar mechanisms at work. This program searches out similarities in the natural world. It gives its target audience (children aged three to seven) a sense of amazement at natural wonders and a desire for knowledge. And it stimulates the powers of observation and imagination that are essential to fostering the scientific spirit.
