Daniel Tiger is playing doctor at school with Chrissie. They are pretending to care for a sick baby when Daniel compliments Chrissie on her charm bracelet. As they continue playing, Chrissie's bracelet is lost. Daniel wants to continue playing but Chrissie is more concerned with her lost bracelet. Teacher Harriet reminds Daniel to consider Chrissie's feelings and he helps her to find the lost bracelet.

Daniel and Chrissie spend a moment acting out various feelings for the other to guess before make-believing a song about feelings.

Daniel moves on to play with Katerina Kittycat as they pretend to feed babies. When Katerina wants to use the toy bottle that Daniel is using, Teacher Harriet encourages Daniel to think about Katerina's feelings and they agree to take turns.
