Episode 120: Daniel’s Sleepover/ Backyard Camping

Daniel’s Sleepover
Daniel goes to his friend Prince Wednesday’s for a sleepover. They brush and wash and get ready for bed, but as they get ready to go to sleep they notice some things that could be just a little bit scary.  Once they investigate further, they learn the things they are seeing actually aren’t scary at all!

Backyard Camping
Daniel and O the Owl are camping in the backyard with Dad Tiger. This is O’s first time sleeping in a tent and he is feeling a little unsure.  Once he examines this new setting closely, he learns that it’s not so scary! In fact, different can be fun!

Learning Goals
The learning goal of this episode is to help children with nighttime fears.

Strategy SongSee what it is, you might feel better.
