Episode Recap

Joe greets us, saying to come on in. he and Blue are using Blue's growth chart to figure out if Blue got taller. We look at one drawing that has two red squares and another with three green squares. Blue grew from two to three squares and has gotten taller. Mr. Salt shows up, saying that he needs help figuring something out too. He wants to know what everyone's favorite snack is. We help him out by creating a snack chart. There rows, columns, and boxes. Mr. Salt draws himself and then places an apple in the box below, because that's his favorite snack. In this episode, we help to find out the favorite snacks of the characters and learn more about charts. Joe adds himself to the chart, as well as his favorite snack: graham crackers. We find out that Side Table Drawer also likes apples, so a picture of her goes into the same column as Mr. Salt. We go outside, where Shovel and Pail are debating whether there are more squirrels in the backyard, or more birds. We look around and determine using a chart that there are two squirrels and three birds, so there are more birds than squirrels. We learn that Shovel also likes apples, and create a new column for Tickety, who likes juice pops. Later, Mrs. Pepper and Paprika are added to that column, because they like juice pops too. We hear some pigs oinked and skidoo along with Blue into a farme. There, we meet a farmer who is going to the market. She asks us to help her while she's away and feed some potatoes to her pigs. We're not sure how many we're supposed to feed them, but find that there's a handy chart that says how many potatoes go to which colored pig. We use it to feed five potatoes to the brown pig and three to the red one. There are no potatoes indicated for the pink pig - it turns out this one likes peppers and peas better.
