It’s no secret that we’re big Daniel Tiger fans in this house.
The lessons, the songs, the content, the books that coincide, we love it all! Recently, “The Daniel Tiger Movie: Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” was released and my kids are hooked!
The story centers around the introduction of a new character, Jodi Platypus. Jodi moves in next door to Daniel and lives with her mom, twin brothers and grandmother. The episode touches on topics so many can relate to:
- Moving to a new house
- Making new friends
- Family dynamics
- Losing a special toy (in Jodi’s case, a book) that would make a child feel like they’re home
With a new story and new songs, this movie is one you shouldn’t miss. And since it’s the same Daniel Tiger series we love, they continue to tie in previous content, like what to do if you have to go potty!
I also love that Jodi is a platypus, how often are platypuses used as characters?! If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out your local PBS Kids station. It’s also available on the PBS Kids app!
