Wherever they go, Alexander and Emily always stumble upon the most amazing adventures. As they criss-cross the globe visiting their mouse cousins, they meet up with famous inventors, composers and even royalty. Their travels take them to the farthest reaches of the globe and, whenever there's a mystery to be solved, they're there to crack the case.
Raindrop looks at the daily aspects of water’s use and its explotation as well as its properties in enviroments well known to children and in others that are not so familiar to them.
At a time like the present, when the future hangs in the balance owing to innumerable factors which are destabilising the natural balance, when a new area of knowledge - ecology - has achieved the status of a science and is reaching previously unknown levels, Raindrop, a story seen from the point of view of the most direct protagonist, aims to show a child audience the different states, applications, curiosities, dangers and natural functions of water as a basic element of survival for the planet Earth.
In order to connect most directly with the child audience that the series is aimed at it seemed tous that humour, without violence, in a carefree tone, without any axe to grind and which plays up the human visual component of the series, is the best way to capture the children’s attention, without forgetting that their powerful imagination can assert the principles we aim to show through this fulfilled character and others who will be sketched out later.
With the aim of not making errors that may influence negatively in the child’s normal development (in spite of the fact that the innocence of the characters and the situations they become involved in do not º º give rise to this) we have consulted pedagogical and psychological experts who have given an unmitigated thumbs-up to the series. Bearing in mind their feedback, we have changed anything that may have been difficult to understand or was, on the contrary, overly simple.
Also, and for the same motives, we worked closely with biologists, chemists and other scientists inorder to make the series truthful and they found nothing that was unsatisfactory.
The pedagogical orientation of Raindrop, starting from new teaching concepts, which give water pride of place from the beginning of the educational process, is based on some geographical surroundings well known by children like the home and the city, the countryside and the sea, the deserts and the subsoil, as well as some other places not so common like purifying and desalinating plants.
As has been stated above, the series is made up of 26 episodes, all with an environmental content and playful narrative.
Lastly, it remains to point out that Raindrop is not just another image for the children to look at but a complement to their education in the hope that this will reach the desired goals in the future. Our intention is not to influence in the child’s knowledge but to widen it, not to theorise but to amuse with theory, with the characters that we will shortly describe.
