Monday Sept 2 is NEIGHBOR DAY on PBS KIDS' Daniel Tiger Show

You'll often see a Tiger prowling through our house ... don't be alarmed though it is just my son playing as one of his favorite cartoon characters - DANIEL TIGER!  This PBS KIDS show captures my kids' attention and cultivates their imagination.  With one more year to go until  until Kindergarten, my 4 year old twins are at just the right age now to appreciate the stories and lessons portrayed in DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD.

PBS KIDS will be celebrating Labor Day (September 2, 2013), and the first birthday of Daniel Tiger's appearance on PBS, with a special "NEIGHBOR DAY" episode of DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD.  Check your local PBS outlet for broadcast times in your area.  In the upcoming "Neighbor Day" episode of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Daniel does a good deed which starts a chain reaction of kindness all around the the neighborhood of MAKE-BELIEVE culminating with King Friday's proclamation of an official "Neighbor Day".  The theme of this special is to show preschoolers that doing something nice for their neighbors can be a rewarding experience that can make you feel good about yourself - a message often presented in the long running Mr. Rogers Neighborhood which this show is based off ... you see the characters in Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood are animated preschool age versions of the puppets from Mr. Rogers.  For more information about Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood  CLICK HERE to read one of my earlier posts about this PBS KIDS animated series.

Check out "Neighbor Day" on Labor Day - you know my kids will be watching!
