Awake in the middle of the night and wondering why the Sun is not up, Peep and Quack stumble across a flashlight that shines light into the darkness. This sets the stage for lots of shadow play fun in this PEEP and the Big Wide World video. The two friends explore making their shadows grow bigger and smaller and discover that by rotating an object in the light, they can change the shape of its shadow.
