What's the story?

LOUIE is an animated series starring a young bunny whose drawings turn into real-life objects. Along with his sister, Sophie, and ladybug buddy, Yoko, Louie spends a lot of time in the forest, where adventures naturally come his way. He's able to solve nearly any problem by drawing a picture, which he describes in great detail so that viewers can draw along if they like. 

Is it any good?

This delightful series not only offers fun, simple stories and gentle characters, but gives kids clear instruction on how to draw simple images. Louie's direction often goes something like this: "To draw a dragon, I draw a round head with two big bumps on top." The way Louie uses his imagination to come up with drawable solutions can inspire kids to think outside the box themselves. The pleasant and slow pace is perfect for preschoolers and also gives them a post-viewing activity -- drawing -- which is a great bonus.
