Episode Recap

Rogers says he has something in a bag that he can pour, but it isn't a liquid. He goes to the sand table one last time to pour in a little extra sand. He likes to think of the many things people do with sand (video montage). Rogers is about to craft something with a cup of sand when Tony Chiroldes asks him to a story reading. Thus Rogers makes his second of two visits to Chiroldes' toy-and-book store. Tony reads Tengo seis años by Ann Morris, photographs by Nancy Sheehan. Rogers says that, although they don't know the people in the book, they do some of the same things as the people we do know. Back at the television house, Rogers creates sand art, dropping small quantities of sand on glue that he has drawn on paper to look like the number 6. In the NOM, King Friday tells HulaMouse to inform the neighbors that a royal arts festival is being planned. Queen Sara gives HulaMouse a painting with a procession of threes. Chuck Aber says he has heard of the arts festival, and that Westwood residents wish to make a sand sculpture. Aber enlists HulaMouse to help on the construction of the sand sculpture. Lady Elaine chides everyone's art and shows "real art" – a pillar from the Museum-Go-Round. Aber is surprised that Lady Elaine has appointed herself judge of the upcoming arts festival. Aber admires Queen Sara's and Tuesday's drawings. But Lady Elaine has a more accurate drawing of the Eiffel Tower. She leaves the Tower telling Chuck Aber and Grand-père, "You will never win." HulaMouse returns to the NOM after carrying all the sand from Westwood. Now they are about to make a sand sculpture.
