Daniel Tiger for Parents includes more than 20 songs, 60 video clips, and 90 conversation starters to help parents and caregivers sing and talk with kids about social and emotional growth through common preschool-age situations.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
