Episode 133: Daniel’s New Friend/Same and Different

Daniel’s New Friend: Daniel and Miss Elaina are at Prince Wednesday’s castle for a royal play date, and meet his cousin Chrissie. As they play “knights,” they discover that, although Chrissie needs some help walking, they are the same in many ways. 

Same and Different: While Daniel is playing dress up with his friends at school, he feels different when he realizes that not everyone has a tail like him. He learns that everyone has differences, but that these are the things that make us unique. 

Learning Goals
The learning goal of this episode is to help children see and appreciate the similarities and differences among people.

The strategy song of this episode is: In some ways we are different, in so many ways we are the same.

Fred Rogers Timeless Wisdom
As different as we are from one another, as unique as each one of us is, we are much more the same that we are different.  That may be the most essential message of all, as we help our children grow toward being caring, compassionate, and charitable adults.” - Fred Rogers
