Daniel Tiger is a shy but brave tiger who lives in the beloved Neighborhood of Make Believe, where, with his preschool friends, he learns the key social skills necessary for school and for life. You’ll love the engaging stories and musical strategies that build upon the early learning curriculum first introduced in the landmark series, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.
