Daniel Tiger is finally making his premiere on PBS Kids! Visit his neighborhood on September 3! There will be a special one-hour block of two back-to-back episodes! Kids can watch Daniel Tiger daily following the premiere (check your local listings)!
Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is a new animated series for children ages 2-5 and is produced by the Fred Rogers Company. Daniel and his friends will share their stories and give preschoolers something to talk about. The first two episodes focus on turning a negative into a positive. Kids will love the first episode, it’s Daniel’s Birthday! Birthdays are the highlight of every child’s year. I know my daughter starts to look forward to her special day six months in advance! In the episode, Daniel is giddy about picking out his birthday cake with his mom! He has a terrific time decorating it with Baker Aker but unfortunately there is a set back when Daniel arrives home with the cake. But don’t worry, everything turns out yummy for Daniel’s Birthday.
The second episode is Daniel’s Picnic. Daniel, Prince Wednesday and Miss Elaina plan a picnic in front of the clock factory. But their picnic gets rained on! You’ll didn’t have to watch to see how they turn around the experience!
Daniel talks right to your kids so your kids so the interaction is right on their level. There are also live segments that wrap up each episode. Preschoolers will adore Daniel Tiger and will learn skills to handle challenges this age group experiences.
“Won’t you be my neighbor!” My daughter wants to know how I know the words to the song! Do we all remember these lyrics? Thanks to PBS for offering another wonderful and free educational program that every child has access to and can enjoy!
