The Kid Should See This

What is a Shooting Star? by They Might Be Giants

One of the kiddo’s favorite songs from They Might Be Giants’ Here Comes Science — after Meet the Elements, of course — here comes What is a Shooting Star? (Spoiler: A shooting star is not a star, it’s not a star at all. A shooting star’s a meteor that’s heading for a fall…)
