|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Dinosaurs and Monsters
Mister Rogers, America's trusted family friend, helps young children understand what scary monsters are -- and aren't -- about. Childhood fears are real fears, even though many things that give rise to them are only fantasy.
Dinosaurs, for instance, were real, so Mister Rogers visits a museum where dinosaur skeletons are exhibited. Some of them had very big teeth. He also visits a construction site and learns how to operate a backhoe...with its very big teeth.
In the "Neighborhood of Make-Believe", the puppet Prince Tuesday has been having scary dreams about dinosaurs. The mischievous Lady Elaine Fairchilde can't resist adding her own excitement with a dinosaur costume and her own kind of magic. Lady Aberlin and Handyman Negri clear up the resulting confusion and help the younger neighbors understand what is real and what is not.
All this and more, as Mister Rogers talks and sings about important feelings of childhood.
Mister Rogers talks about DINOSAURS AND MONSTERS -- a video special that can help your family talk about feelings, too.
