Day or Night?

The sun, moon and earth show

An entertaining storytelling introduction to night and day looking at the Sun, Moon and Earth. Join Benny and Jack on a journey of discovery as they learn what children in different places around the world are doing at exactly the same time. Why is one child getting up just as another goes to bed? Mind-boggling questions answered in a colourful and interactive show.
