About Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood - from PBS:
"A new generation of preschool “neighbors” will get to experience the Neighborhood of Make-Believe when DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD premieres Monday, September 3, 2012, on PBS KIDS. The first TV series inspired by the iconic, award-winning MISTER ROGERS' NEIGHBORHOOD, DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD from The Fred Rogers Company 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. As they closely follow and share Daniel’s everyday adventures, preschoolers ages 2-4 and their families learn fun and practical strategies and skills necessary for growing and learning."
We are huge PBS SoCal fans at our house.
and Wild Kratts are already TV viewing staples,
so I'm excited for my kids to have learning experiences with Daniel
like I did growing up with Mr. Rogers.
As a mom and an educator I really appreciate quality programming
for preschoolers that addresses their unique developmental
situations like expressing feelings, exploring routines,
and modeling positive relationships.
It means a lot that PBS values preschoolers as special
little people that deserve quality programming
that allows them to be little and not grow up too fast.
So, if you're able,
head on down to Pretend City on Saturday
and catch a preview of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood!
