Still image from Got a Problem?  Solve It!

Introduces children to a five-step procedure for solving everyday problems. Eric doesn't want Mike to copy his homework or answers; Annie loses Steven's new walkie-talkies; Pam hates sharing a bedroom with her sister; Jay falls and breaks the eggs his mother needs. These four dramatizations illustrate the problem-solving techniques, moving from simple problems to more complex ones.
