Stage Fright? Snowflake Day! by Becky Friedman, adaptor

TODAY IS SNOWFLAKE DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

"EVERY SNOWFLAKE IS DIFFERENT," SAYS DAD.

"IT'S SNOWING ON SNOWFLAKE DAY," DANIEL SINGS.

Daniel Tiger loves the snow, and he is excited about the decorations down in Enchanted Gardens park. It is a festive scene with music and special food and lots of sparkly lights. There are plenty of people, too, some of the youngest in snowflake costumes.

And then, there's that stage.

Daniel is a bit nervous. He has to get up on that stage with some of the kids in shiny costumes, and he has to say his LINES.
"I'M A SNOWFLAKE, AS SPECIAL AS CAN BE BE.

THERE'S NOBODY ELSE EXACTLY LIKE ME!"

I'M HERE TO SAY... LET'S START THE PLAY!

The pressure is on. Daniel is worried. He's on his mark, center stage. What if he forgets his lines?

And just as they begin the play, the lights go out!

Can Daniel save the Snowflake Day Play? In this new Daniel Tiger tale, Snowflake Day! (Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood) (Simon and Schuster, 2019), based on the popular Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood PBS program, Daniel manages to find a way to light up the stage. Becky Friedman's charming adaptation celebrates self-confidence and self-esteem in a shaped board book with lots of eye appeal and sparkle with a message that everyone is special in their own special way.

Save a place in the Christmas stocking also for Simon and Schuster's seasonal top seller, Merry Christmas, Daniel Tiger!: A Lift-the-Flap Book (Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood).
