Barney the Dinosaur enjoys a typical day at school with the Backyard Gang. As he joins them in finger-painting, "pretend" play, and learning center activities -- numbers, letters, colors and shapes -- not to mention scampering after a mischievous hamster named Zippity -- he discovers why the children love to go to school every day: learning is so much fun!
