Join Big Bird, Elmo and their Chinese friend, Hu Hu Zhu, exploring the sky they share. Big Bird starts us off by directing our attention to the daytime sky above, including the sun, which is actually a star. Stars are just like our sun, but shining farther away. Following the sunset, kids can use their imagination to make shapes by connecting the stars they see. While stargazing, Big Bird points out the Big Dipper, a popular constellation in the night sky. Hu Hu Zhu teaches us how to say “hi,” “Big Dipper” and “moon” in Chinese. Then he teaches us to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star! Without a space ship, Elmo and Hu Hu Zhu need our help imagining what it would be like to go to the moon. Once there, they discover that being on the moon is different from being on Earth. They see the Earth as if it were a moon in the sky, and the stars look the same as they do from China or from home.
