Finally, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood books are here! Parents and children alike are rejoicing openly in the streets!
"Thank You Day" is created directly from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Season 1, Episode 28 "Neighborbood Thank You Day." "The neighborhood celebrates Thank You Day by putting notes in the Thank You Tree. However, a windstorm blows them away, but thanks to Mr. McFeeley, the Thank You Day party is saved, to which Daniel makes a Thank You Day card for him." (Wikipedia episode summary) It is very true to the episode. This pre-level one reader describes the purpose of the book to be "shared reading, familiar characters, and simple words." Since it is meant for children learning to read, the sentences are very short and mildly redundant. Not the most dynamic storybook to read aloud, but it gets the job done for early readers.
The hardcover book is of good quality. It's 9x6". The pages are matte but filled with full-page illustraitons. Downrating one star for price. Not sure why this book is so expensive. I personally don't feel the extra $8 worth of quality over the $4 paperbacks.
Still a good purchase (just wish I had gone for paperback). Our two year old's mind exploded with joy!
