|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a book called Day Care which he takes to the couch to read. The book is about children who stay with day care providers while their parents are at work. After reading the book, Mister Rogers sings I Will Be Back.
Marilyn Barnett stops by and invites Mister Rogers outside for some exercises. Just as she is leaving, Bruce Franco happens by on his way to a birthday party and is carrying a collection of balloon scuptures he has made for the party. After demonstrating his talents by making a flamingo, Mr. Franco gives Mister Rogers a balloon sculpture that looks like the Neighborhood Trolley.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday is preparing to give a speech at the opening of the new factory caring center. As he prepares to go for a job, Neighbor Aber talks with Queen Sara about Prince Tuesday's recent frustrations. She mentions that she dislikes leaving her son as much as Prince Tuesday dislikes his parents being away. As the Queen departs, Prince Tuesday shares his frustrations with Neighbor Aber who encourages him to talk directly with the King and Queen. Together, the Prince and Neighbor Aber begin exercising as Lady Aberlin stops by on her way to the factory.
At the factory, Prince Tuesday is happy to find that the guest speakers at the caring center opening are his parents. King Friday validates the feelings of his son by sharing that he, too, was frustrated when he was young and his parents had to go to work. Feeling better, Prince Tuesday announces that he will help the children in the caring center.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers spends some time remembering the day's visitors and lessons learned.
