Something Special for Dad
When Dad receives a letter from Grandpere, Daniel sees how happy Dad is.  Daniel really loves Dad, so he decides to send him a letter too.  Then he goes to the Post Office with Mom, where he learns how letters are sorted and mailed.  He even joins Mr. McFeely on his “speedy delivery” to give Dad his very special letter!

I Love You, Mom
Daniel wants to surprise Mom Tiger with her favorite banana bread because he knows how much she likes it – and “making something is one way to say I love you.”  He and Dad go to Baker Aker’s Bakery, where they learn about the bread-making process.  They return home to surprise Mom and she happily shares the banana bread gift with them too!

Learning Goals
The learning goal of this episode is to help children know that one way to express their love is by making something for someone.
The strategy song of this episode is: Making something is one way to say “I love you.”

Fred Rogers Timeless Wisdom
For some children, being a generous giver and a gracious receiver are natural. But other children may need more time and more help from us … When we show children we care about their feelings and that we enjoy giving and receiving, we help them understand how much we receive when we give and how much we give when we receive.
- Fred Rogers
