When Margaret wanders off during the story, Daniel is frustrated and is reminded by his mom: "You're big enough to think of what to do." Recognizing that Margaret is holidng a tamborine, Daniel recognizes that his sister would rather have music time instead.

Daniel make-believes that he and Margaret are performing their own dance show.

At snack time, Daniel thinks of what he should do when Margaret takes part of his snack. He decides that it would be best for he and his sister to share their snacks with each other.

For school play time, Daniel wants to play barn animals but Margaret soon grows tired. Teacher Daniel recognizes that his sister needs a nap and is proud of himself for being big enough to think of what to do.
