Virginia Limberger, Producer, Sincrocine added, “Tainá encourages pre-school children to deal with the cognitive aspects of their age, in a playful and light way, helping them to have a good relationship with their friends. And, the children can also discover about the Amazon Rainforest and how to take care of Nature. All of that with content full of adventure.
KIRIMBAU! (Indigenous term)”.
In the heart of the Amazon rainforest, Tainá and her friends live in a house in the Great Tree – the tallest one, mother of all other trees. All the animals in the forest know that whenever they need help, they can count on Tainá by calling “cru-cru”. By word of mouth, this contagious call finds its way through the forest until it reaches Tainá, who is always ready to face the challenges coming in her way! Together, Tainá and her team have lots of fun in an enchanted forest, but they will also face many perils trying to protect the Great Forest.
Playfully children will learn about the Amazon rainforest, stimulating them to respect the cultural differences between people, bringing a message of friendship, respect and care for the nature in each episode.
