Daniel Tiger is at Jodi's house where they are playing and hide-and-seek in an indoor city they have constructed out of blankets and pillows. After pretending to ride a bus around "Blanket City," it's nap time for Leo and Teddy. Nana Platypus encourages the boys to rest: "Close your eyes. Snuggle. Or take a deep breath. You can do what helps you rest."

Back in Blanket City, Daniel takes over a bus driver as he and Jodi visit the zoo. Daniel make-believes he's in a real city.

Mom Tiger stops by to pick up Daniel and they need to go straight home for Margaret's nap time. Daniel also shows signs of being tired. With Margaret in her crib, everyone takes a deep breath and Daniel decides to take a rest himself.
