An oldie but goodie reminiscent of Sesame Street in its use of puppets interacting with caring and compassionate adults to teach preschoolers important life lessons. Allegra's Window is a charming show that originally aired in the early 1990's but is still as relevant as ever. Each episode models important life skills like how to make friends or how to identify and label feelings. When one character says "my tummy feels funny," for example, his brother responds, "you're nervous." The star of the show, Allegra, also has a relatable relationship with her older brother who's playful and loving, but can be impatient with her at times. It's not all teaching moments, though -- silly humor and animated shorts woven throughout the episodes also keep things interesting. This is a show parents can feel good about turning on and young children will be excited to return to again and again.
