Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Features “Neighbor Day”

Sept5NeighborDay

On September 2, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood featured an episode called “Neighbor Day”. Daniel’s first good deed started a chain reaction of kindness all around the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, culminating with King Friday’s proclamation of an official Neighbor Day.

It also marked the one-year anniversary of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. Daniel Tiger and his friends O the Owl, Katerina Kittycat, and Miss Elaina debuted on TV last Labor Day.

“Neighbor Day” showed preschoolers that doing something nice for their neighbors can be a rewarding experience that makes them feel good about themselves. Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood was inspired by Fred Rogers.
