Daniel Tiger and his dad are in their pajamas as they look at Dad Tiger's model of the Enchanted Garden. When Daniel asks questions about the model, Dad Tiger reminds him that "we've got to look a little closer to find out what we want to know."

Mom Tiger invites Daniel to help her make strawberry pancakes, but they are all out of strawberries. Daniel and his parents board the Trolley and are taken to the Enchanted Garden to pick some fresh berries.

At the Enchanted Garden, Daniel make-believes that the plants are singing. As he picks strawberries, Daniel has questions about the plants and is reminded to look closely to find out what he wants to know.

Back at their house, the Tigers wash their hand and work together to make heart-shaped strawberry pancakes.
