Daniel Tiger is excited about going to the library for storytime and has to be reminded to calm down and buckle up on the Trolley.

On the way, he and Dad Tiger stop to visit with King Friday and Prince Wednesday who join them on their trip to the library. The boys hop like frogs until they arrive at the library where they have to calm down.

Inside the library, X the Owl shows Daniel a variety of books and Daniel make-believes that he is with all of the characters from each book. They decide to read a book called "Tigey the Adventure Tiger Saves the Day." As they read, Prince Wednesday has to be reminded to calm down so others can hear the story.

After the story, everyone goes outside where they make up their own silly adventure story.


  • "Give a squeeze, nice and slow. Take a deep breath and let it go."
