This lovely series revolves around the adventures of 8 year old aardvark Arthur Read, his friends and family and their daily interactions with each other. The show addresses some of the typical childhood problems kids get into as they are growing up, such as bratty siblings, schoolyard bullies and classroom cliques. It’s a creative show with positive messages about friendship and helping each other out. The series strongly emphasises on the educational value of books and libraries as well as relationships with friends and family members. We also see throughout the series how the friends grow up and how they learn to be good neighbours to one another.
