|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Duckling Goes Home
Daniel Tiger and his friends are playing outside at school. The class pet duck, Ducky, is in her pen. Teacher Harriet shows a picture of Ducky when she was a baby and tells the students that it is time for Ducky to go live on a farm.
This news makes Daniel and Miss Elaina very sad and Teacher Harriet reminds them that it's okay to feel sad sometimes. O the Owl suggests drawing a picture to help remember Ducky when she is gone.
After Daniel make-believes that Ducky is a student at his school, he still feels a little sad. Teacher Harriett takes a picture of the children with Ducky before they leave for the farm.
At the farm, everyone sees other ducks on the pond and watch as Ducky goes to the water to be with them. They feel better knowing that Ducky is happy.
