Daniel Waits for Show and Tell
It's Daniel Tiger's turn for show and tell at school. When he has a hard time containing his excitement, Mom Tiger reminds him that "when you wait you can play, sing, or imagine anything." Singing on the way to school makes the time pass more quickly for Daniel.
At school, Daniel shows Teacher Harriet the book he brought for show and tell. He is reminded that "when you wait you can play, sing, or imagine anything."
The class gathers in the science corner where a baby duck is about to hatch. The children watch closely and wait for the baby duckling to emerge. While they wait, the children play a "quacking game" and sing "Daniel Tiger had a farm." Soon enough, the egg cracks open and the baby duck is born.
Daniel Tiger make-believes that he is on a farm playing with the baby duck before show and tell time arrives and Daniel gladly shares a book he made about his birthday.
Everyone sings a song about finding things to do while waiting. Mom Tiger arrives and Daniel tells her about waiting and shows her the baby duck.
