Laura and Robert Sams, The Riddle Solvers, take viewers on a fascinating adventure to solve a riddle found inside a bottle discovered in a lake: What never stops moving, but connects us all? Aquatic creatures around the world offer possible answers. Each time the pair ask for help by tossing the bottle back into the water, we are treated to a presentation by a different creature with a different possible answer. For example, a sea turtle explains currents, the fish in a tide pool sing about the rhythm of the tides, and viewers explore the water cycle with Laura and Robert. Finally, the answer becomes clear as a pirate who has lost his peg leg sings of his quest from pond to stream to river to ocean, all around the world, in search of his "peggy. The movement of water is what connects us all. The underwater and nature photography is fabulous, and the lessons are made even more entertaining by the actual sea creatures who "speak" with charming, often humorous voices. Teaching materials are included on the DVD. Created with a grant from the Save Our Seas Foundation, this adventure through the Earth's water is entertaining and educational.
