Out now on DVD is Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood’s Would You Be Mine? That features eight stories including “It’s Love Day!” and “Daniel’s Love Day Surprise?” In the episode “It’s Love Day,” Daniel makes special heart cards to bring to school and hand out. While at school, some of the kids explain how they like to say “I love you” to their friends and family – Prince Wednesday likes to sing, and Miss Elaina likes to give hugs. In the story “Daniel’s Love Day Surprise,” Daniel helps his mom make a special heart-shaped pizza and finds a way to show Grandpère how much he loves him by setting up a special treasure hunt just for him featuring sparkling purple hearts. The other stories included on this DVD are “Daniel and Miss Elaina Play Rocketship,” “Daniel Plays at the Castle,” “Friends Help Each Other,” “Daniel Helps O Tell a Story,”
“Margaret’s First Chime Time,” and “Tiger Family Fun.” One of the key ingredients that sets this series apart is its groundbreaking use of catchy musical strategies grounded in Fred Rogers’ landmark social-emotional curriculum that reinforce each theme and that preschoolers and parents both sing – and use – together in their daily lives. Some of the strategies kids will learn from the stories on this DVD include “find your own way to say, I love you” and “friends help each other, yes they do, it’s true.”
My Opinion: This is a great DVD for young kids as they can learn how to express their feelings and about Valentine’s Day. I think it is important for kids to be able to share how they are feeling.
