The Circle of Life
This entertaining show appeals to children's fascination with gardens and living things. Lively songs with dances and a short script teach the importance of food chains and introduce the recycling expert Minibeasts and a bunch of hungry vegetables.
Plants get their food from the soil while animals get theirs from plants and other animals. When plants and animals die they decompose in the soil and are recycled. Everything goes round and round, and that’s the Cycle of Life!

Song Sample: from DIRTY ROTTEN DECOMPOSERS
We're the dirty rotten decomposers,
The natural waste disposers,
We get down to it, mulch it up and chew it
It's a dirty rotten job, but then someone's got to do it.
And what grows up must come down
And the cycle of life goes round and round,
The cycle of life goes round and round.
