Daniel Tiger is at school playing cars with his friends -- he is a police car, Katerina Kittycat is the trolley, and Miss Elaina is a dump truck. Daniel make-believes that he is a policeman helping animals cross the street.

Miss Elaina is playing very loudly which bothers Daniel. She tries to quickly apologize but Daniel is still upset. Teacher Harriet listens to both sides of the story and explains that sometimes it takes more than just saying sorry. Miss Elaina agrees to try and be quieter as she plays.

Continuing to play cars, the friends pretend they are speeding down a twisty road. Daniel is not paying attention and crashes into Katerina three times, quickly apologizing each time. The third time, however, Katerina becomes upset; especially when she realizes her car costume is ripped. Daniel offers to help fix the costume for his friend and agrees to be more careful as they continue playing.


  • "Saying 'I'm sorry' is the first step. Then 'How can I help?'"
