The “DANIEL GOES TO SCHOOL” DVD includes the following stories: 


A Trip to the Crayon Factory
Daniel Tiger, Miss Elaina, and Katerina Kittycat take a fun trip to the factory to see how crayons are made but, O the Owl can’t come because he’s sick. At the factory, the kids watch the crayons being made, and Daniel looks and listens closely. Daniel has an idea to take pictures at the factory and give them to O at the end of the day, so that O can learn about crayons too!

Be a Vegetable Taster!
Teacher Harriet introduces Daniel and his friends to the school’s vegetable garden and convinces them to pick out some healthy veggies for their snack. They explore the garden, picking and trying different vegetables…with mixed results!

Line Leader Daniel
The children are getting new classroom jobs at school. Daniel really wants to be line leader! When he doesn’t get the job he wanted, Daniel is disappointed. Soon he learns that all of the jobs are necessary to keep the classroom running smoothly.

Problem Solver Daniel
Daniel and Miss Elaina are playing with the blocks at school but they each want to build something different. They call Teacher Harriet over to help fix the problem, but she tells them to work out a solution without her. They do, and feel proud that they can figure things out all by themselves.

The Class Votes
At school, Daniel and his classmates get to choose their new class pet! Teacher Harriet explains that they can either get a bunny or a turtle. The kids learn what it means to “vote” and that sometimes it doesn’t always turn out your way. Luckily, ALL of the kids find something to love about their new pet, “Snowball”!

O Builds a Tower
In the block corner at school, O the Owl is determined to use all of the blocks to build the tallest tower in the world. After many failed attempts, he is frustrated, but Teacher Harriet and O’s friends encourage him to try once again. 

Play Pretend
Teacher Harriet shows the children a big cardboard box and asks them what they think it could be. Daniel and Miss Elaina have fun pretending the box is a space ship and a jungle boat, but O the Owl just sees a big cardboard box. With a little help from his friends, O discovers how much fun it is to pretend!

Safety Patrol
Today at school, the children are learning about traffic signs. Prince Tuesday comes for a special visit, wearing his crossing guard uniform. He takes the class on a walk through the Neighborhood and they practice their safety rules all along the way.
The first original show from The Fred Rogers Company since the iconic MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD, DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD stars 4-year-old Daniel Tiger, son of the original program’s Daniel Striped Tiger, who invites young viewers into his world, giving them a kid’s-eye view of his life. DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, which debuted in September 2012, airs daily on PBS KIDS (check local listings). Angela C. Santomero of Out of the Blue Enterprises, Kevin Morrison of The Fred Rogers Company, and Vince Commisso of 9 Story Entertainment are the program’s executive producers.

We've always been a fan of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood and have movies, books, and even a talking stuffed Daniel. Our third daughter celebrated her birthday back in February with a Daniel themed birthday party and it was so cute seeing her happy with my choice. 

We always record the new episodes and have them around whenever she needs a pick me up or isn't feeling well, and then the DVDs go on their playroom for her to watch whenever she chooses. I'm glad we have a younger child to continue the Daniel fun our home as our other girls get older because I love the message behind the show, all the positive things they try to teach the kiddos, and it's always nice to fun positive cartoons for our children.
