Daniel Tiger and his family are preparing for a visit from Grandpere. Daniel becomes frustrated when the picture he drew for his grandfather will not stay in place on the front door. With some encouragement from Dad Tiger -- "Sometimes it's good to go slow" -- Daniel is able to tape the picture securely in place.

When Grandpere arrives, he and Daniel decide to make raisin bread, but they need to go to the Neighborhood market for a few ingredients. Prince Tuesday is working at the market and hurries to get the items they need. As he rushes, he drops a bag of flour on the floor. Daniel reminds him that "sometimes it's good to go slow" and helps clean up the mess. Daniel make-believes that it is snowing inside the market.

Returning to the house, Daniel and Grandpere take their time making raisin bread after Daniel spills some batter.


  • "Sometimes it's good to go slow."
