Daniel Tiger and his family have prepared a picnic to enjoy while they watch fireworks from the back yard. While their parents set up the picnic, Daniel and Margaret explore the yard and watch as the sun sets.

As darkness falls, fireflies begin to shine and Margaret is scared. Mom Tiger explains that fireflies are new to Margaret and that new things can sometimes be scary. Daniel and Margaret are reminded that "when something is new, holding a hand can help you." Holding his sister's hand, Daniel takes Margaret for another look at the fireflies.

As the Tiger family enjoys their picnic, the fireworks begin. The loud noise startles Daniel who become more comfortable when he holds hands with his sister.
