Lady Rainbow and the Far Away Friends

Lady Rainbow tries to cheer up her best friend, Rainbow Bear, when his grownups say they can’t play together in-person. Along the way, they learn about making phone calls and mailing letters, and children at home are invited to send a picture to Lady Rainbow and get a letter mailed back to them! The show ends by helping Rainbow Bear get ready for a cozy nap with a new version of an old story from The Brothers Grimm!
