The young tiger stars in Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, based on the “Neighborhood of Make-Believe” from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. The show targets preschool-age children through imagination, creativity, and music while learning the key social skills necessary for school and for life.
Daniel Tiger activity books will be distributed at many of his stops. The books were made available by Fred Rogers Productions and WETA after Panhandle PBS won first prize in a contest celebrating the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.
