Mister Rogers arrives with a new toy truck and watches a film about different types of real trucks.

Chuck Aber stops by with H.J. Elephant III and a book called I Read Signs. He talks with Mister Rogers about playing with puppets and beginning to read.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin discovers H.J. Elephant III knows sign language but H.J. is still hesitant to get involved in The Reading Game. Meanwhile, King Friday is not happy with Corney's "seeing inside things machine" even though it seems to work quite well for Neighbor Aber.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about your thoughts being your own before he sings You're the Only One. Before wrapping up for the day, Mr. McFeely stops by with a film about how people make homemade paper.
