Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about things that grow. All living things grow... plants, animals, and people! What do plants need to grow? When was a time you felt like you were growing?
Which of Ms. Tab's friends do you like the best? Why? What did you learn from DJ Krafty, or Starla the Spatula?
Feelings are a big part of this show. Ms. Tab tells us that whatever you're feeling is the right feeling, because that's how you're feeling. Can you name what you're feeling? Do you ever feel more than one feeling at a time, like nervous and excited?
