Mister Rogers arrives with construction paper and a stapler which he takes to the kitchen and uses to make a small crown. As he works, he sings Look and Listen. Mister Rogers pretends to send a crown to the royal baby expected to be born soon.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin and Edgar Cooke look at various gifts that have been given to the new baby. When they take the gifts inside the castle, Henrietta Pussycat happens upon the crown and takes it home to wear. When they go get the crown for Queen Sara, Lady Aberlin and Edgar Cooke are startled to find that it is gone. A paw print at the castle leads them to believe that Henrietta may have the crown.

At the tree, Lady Aberlin finds that Henrietta is wearing the crown and she explains that it was intended for the King and Queen's new baby. Since Henrietta was only interested in dressing up, Lady Aberlin offers her some different costumes. Henrietta is happy when she dresses up as a nurse and pretends to care for a baby. As Lady Aberlin listens, Henrietta lovingly sings I'm Taking Care of You.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers uses a handkerchief to make a pretend baby similar to the one Lady Aberlin made for Henrietta. In the kitchen, he draws a family on construction paper before Picture Picture shows a film about the letter B. Mister Rogers concludes by singing Many Ways to Say I Love You.


The gifts for the royal baby include a blanket crocheted by Elsie Jean Platypus.

The film about the letter B also appears in Episode 1094.
