My daughters and I love Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. It is one of our favorite PBS Kids shows. We watch it every day. When we know that we will be gone, we set it to record. We love it that much. When I saw the previews this summer that Daniel Tiger would become a big brother – we all got so excited! I immediately set that episode (1 hour special) to record. My girls had fun guessing if he would have a little sister or brother (spoiler alert – he has a baby sister!). I loved how they did the episode. It was great for that age group – did not reveal too much – and really talked about family values. My oldest daughter loves singing the songs from this episode and talking about how she will be a big helper big sister, just like Daniel Tiger is a big helper big brother.
The new DVD shines a spotlight on a relevant topic for families and preschoolers everywhere – smoothing the transition for preschoolers with a new sibling in the family. Inspired by the enduring wisdom of Fred Rogers, the shows tackle many of the important issues young children encounter with a new sibling – such as feeling left out, learning to share time and attention, and appreciating how fun a little sister (or brother) can be.
