PBS KIDS VIPOn Friday, September 27, the residents of DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD will meet a new friend when Chrissie, Prince Wednesday’s 6-year-old cousin makes her first visit to The Neighborhood of Make-Believe in an all-new episode, “Daniel’s New Friend/Same and Different.” Chrissie plans to visit the Neighborhood frequently, and will appear on future episodes of the hit PBS KIDS show.

pbskidsdtn“Daniel really likes it when Chrissie comes around, because she is friendly, outgoing and knows how to use her imagination very well! Chrissie uses crutches as well as braces on her legs to help her walk. When asked about her disability, Chrissie proudly talks about the many things she’s able to do on her own, as well as what she needs help with. Chrissie’s matter-of-fact responses give Daniel, as well as young viewers, a wonderful opportunity to learn about someone who is different from a preschool perspective.”


Daniel Tiger's New Friend...

James Zahn and Daniel Tiger in Miami...As I’ve mentioned many times here on The Rock Father, DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD is one of the best preschool shows on television, and was an immediate hit when it made it’s debut last Fall. Out of all the shows that my little ones watch, Daniel is my favorite. I’ve even hung out with him on occasion.
