Produced by The Fred Rogers Company, the Emmy-nominated Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood teaches preschoolers practical strategies and skills necessary for growing and learning. A recent study showed that kids who watched Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood had higher levels of empathy, were better at recognizing emotions, and were more confident in social situations. This was especially true for low-income children and kids ages four and younger.
