How it grows is an animated miniseries for toddlers (3+). The 13 episodes portrays the life cycles of various animals, from birth to adulthood. Animals have an interesting, unique or unusual life cycle. These include the butterfly, frog, bee, chicken...

Each episode features a main character; one of the selected animals; in its natural habitat. We follow its development through rhyming narration, ending with two riddles, which summarize what the child has learned throughout the episode. The riddles are simple and accessible, and they are accompanied by a visual aide, which reveals the answer.

The narrative is constructed with rhyming prose, as rhythm is an important factor for toddlers learning new words, and keeping their attention.

Song writer: Feri Lainšček (famous Slovenian poet)
