But 'Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood' isn't just about keeping the lil' ones visually quiet for a while! There are many occasions for preschool skills like color recognition and simple counting practice as well as positive character traits like patience and obedience to be discovered here.
Even more prominent, from beginning to end is the story's reminder of the value of trying new things. Which Daniel does with the help of his parents and his kindly Dad.
My 2-year old grandson LOVES this show! He is rarely still, but will sit through entire episodes of Daniel Tiger, responding to questions, singing along, and giving me "Ugga- mugga" kisses. He even has a "Tigey" he sleeps with! So, what more could you want?! These are all Widescreen Presentations (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
