Best of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: Neighborhood Friends Collection

90 min. PBS. 2018. $14.99. ISBN 9781531703905.
PreS-Gr 1—In this eight-episode collection, Daniel and his friends Miss Elaina, Prince Wednesday, and Katerina Kittycat play together and learn what it means to include everyone in the game, how to work through arguments, and that friends help one another. Daniel Tiger makes new friends and discovers that they can be very different from one another. Each segment contains an important lesson and reinforces previous ones, and young viewers interact with Daniel Tiger and his friends through seek-and-find questions which teach them about topics like shapes. Children will see Daniel and his friends work through emotions such as anger and sadness, and will be inspired to use their imagination with pretend play and dress up. With Spanish and English subtitles and audio, this collection is perfect for those who are learning either language.
VERDICT A beautiful collection that teaches the value of friendship, kindness, and imagination. Highly recommended for preschool and early elementary collections.
