series description

Bali, a resolutely modern preschooler, lives a resolutely modern life in the big city. With a most un-stereotypical family, Bali faces the world inquisitively, sometimes shyly, never recklessly, and always enthusiastically. Both of Bali's parents work, and Bali's dad takes a very active role in handling the family's daily grind. The triumphs and concerns of Bali deal with many of today's social issues for children: nannies, divorce and little everyday traumas such as going back to school and first sleepovers. Targeted to pre-schoolers, the animated series BALI features a painterly graphic style with bold colors, along with a strong musical score and original songs designed to encourage movement. Each half-hour episode focuses on a theme, including helping those in need, dealing with new experiences, asking for help, facing a challenge and following instructions.
