When you think about your kids, remember one thing: You (and they) can (occassionally) move off of Sesame Street. Two perfect PBS Distributions example: Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: Daniel's Big Feelings and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: Life's Little Lessons.
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. Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood airs Monday- Friday on PBS Kids. Each DVD will contain eight engaging episodes featuring what Fred Rogers knew all along: social and emotional competencies are the building blocks of doing well in school and in life. Both Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: Daniel's Big Feelings and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: Life's Little Lessons each have an approximate running time of 100 minutes. As an added bonus, Daniel's Big Feelings contains two bonus episodes, with a combined approximate running time of 25 minutes.
To help boost invaluable skills among preschoolers, each episode of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood consists of two engaging stories that center on a common early learning theme such as dealing with disappointment. One of the key ingredients that set the series apart is its groundbreaking use of catchy, musical strategies that reinforce each theme and that preschoolers and parents will both sing–and use–together in their daily lives. Every story includes an “imagination moment” in which Daniel plays out a preschool fantasy set to music. Then, the day’s strategy is reprised in a full song at the end.
In Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: Daniel's Big Feelings, four-year-old Daniel invites young viewers directly into his world, giving them a kid’s eye view of his life and making them feel like one of his neighbors. As they follow Daniel’s everyday adventures, preschoolers and their families learn fun and practical strategies and skills necessary for dealing with everyday experiences, like feeling left out or frustrated, being jealous of a friend, or understanding how someone else feels. Episodes on the Daniel’s Big Feelings DVD include: Duckling Goes Home/Daniel Feels Left Out/Daniel Gets Frustrated/Frustration at School/Daniel is Jealous/Jealousy at the Treehouse/Someone Else’s Feelings and Empathy at School. The bonus episodes on this DVD are Daniel Gets Mad and Katerina Gets Mad.
In Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood: Life’s Little Lessons, four-year-old Daniel invites young viewers directly into his world, giving them a kid’s eye view of his life and making them feel like one of his neighbors. As they follow Daniel’s everyday adventures, preschoolers and their families learn fun and practical strategies and skills necessary for dealing with everyday experiences, like dealing with new experiences, taking turns with a favorite toy, and learning bathroom and daily routines. Episodes on this DVD include: Prince Wednesday Goes to the Potty/Daniel Goes to the Potty/Daniel Visits School/Daniel Visits the Doctor/Daniel Shares his Tigertastic Car/Katerina Shares her Tutu and Good Morning Daniel/Good Night Daniel.
Just think: No Ernie or Bert for a while!
