Daniel Tiger and O the Owl visit the Dinosaur Playground where there is a big dinosaur slide. When he sees its size, O is nervous about going down the slide. Watching Daniel go down the big slide first, O finds the courage to try it for himself. Daniel climbs the stairs to the top in order to help O feel brave.

Daniel make-believes that he is on a slide that takes him everywhere in his neighborhood.

Daniel and O stomp their way to the rocking dinosaurs, but Daniel finds that they rock too fast for his liking. Mom Tiger holds Daniel's hand while O rocks slowly along.

When Mom Tiger feels uneasy on the dino bridge, O and Daniel help her across.


  • "With a little help, you can be brave."
