TV Show Review
This episode revolves around Spencer’s question, “How does night happen?” The StoryBots decide to follow the sun to find out. When they are on the beach and the sun looks like it disappears into the ocean, they go underwater to find it…with no luck! Mr. Whale teaches them that the sun is always in outer space, even though it may look like it disappears when it sets. The StoryBots travel 93 million miles to the sun to find out why night happens. The sun teaches them about how earth revolves around him and night happens on the side of the earth that isn’t facing the sun. It’s as simple as that. In the mean time, you also learn about the letter N and the color red. StoryBots is silly and engaging for kids of all ages.
