Episode 112 – Fruit Picking Day/ Daniel is Big Enough to Help Dad

Fruit Picking Day
Daniel and his friends are enjoying a Fruit Festival in the Enchanted Garden. Prince Wednesday is upset because his big brother Prince Tuesday can pick the highest fruit off the tree branches, but he can’t. He wishes he wasn’t so little! Then, when the festival-goers spot a very special magical golden pear on the ground, Prince Wednesday is the only one little enough to reach it.

Daniel is Big Enough to Help Dad
Dad Tiger is building a playhouse, and Daniel wants to help. Daniel is frustrated that he is not big enough to use the grown up tools. Dad Tiger shows Daniel that there are things he can do to help that he’s just the right size for.

Learning Goals The learning goal of this episode to help children know that even though they are small, there are many things they can do. The strategy song for this episode is: Everyone is big enough to do something.

Fred Rogers Timeless Wisdom
As children become more and more aware of themselves and their world, they become aware of how small they are, compared to people who take care of them. We adults can help young children feel good about who they are when we show that we value what they can do … and that we don’t expect them to be more grownup than they are ready to be. – Fred Rogers
