Before becoming the world-famous dove of peace, a young, enthusiastic dove learns how to appreciate and bring together the diverse
cultures of the world.
Welcome to Avery's World
Watch this short video of our theme song for a sense of the fun, excitement, and purpose of our show.
Avery's World follows an Anti-Bias and Diversity curriculum. Avery along with the show's pre-school viewers, learn that the world they inhabit is made up of contributions from many different kinds of people, and that they, too, can contribute to others.

The main characters represent different regions of the world. There's Ragnar, a fussy, selfish Scandinavian seagull; Lakpa, a precocious Asian kitten; Rosalia, a headstrong, musical Latina bird-of-paradise; and Avery, an artistic, optimistic dove. Avery does not have a set cultural identity; he is "everybird" and takes on local cultural characteristics wherever the show travels.
Each episode begins with Avery and his friends (who live together on an island) stumped by a domestic problem. For example, an ingredient may be missing from a recipe, a mysterious piece of art may be delivered, or a visitor in need may arrive.
The solution comes when one of the characters or guest stars remembers what they did "back in my homeland." The character then tells a first-person story, shown in flashback, that opens a window into a new culture and reveals the solution to the current problem. Back in the present, the friends celebrate their accomplishment with a song that reflects that newly-introduced culture.
As the characters work together to solve common problems, viewers at home learn how different cultures -- through art, music, food and industry -- contribute to their daily lives.
