Alert the kids: Daniel Tiger, Katerina Kittycat and PBS co-host Mr. Steve are coming to our neighborhood!

WSRE is hosting Pensacola’s first annual Be My Neighbor Day—a FREE family event spotlighting the neighborly values of Mister Rogers—on Saturday, April 21 from 10am–2pm. Daniel Tiger and Katerina Kittycat will be at the WSRE studios at Pensacola State College to greet young fans; PBS KIDS co-host Mr. Steve will perform three shows in the Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio; and several community organizations will be on hand with children’s activity booths and useful information for parents.

About DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD:

Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood an animated program for preschoolers ages 2 to 4 which builds on the pioneering PBS series, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. This series, for a new generation of children, tells engaging stories about the life of a preschooler using musical strategies grounded in Fred Rogers’ landmark social-emotional curriculum. Through imagination, creativity and music, Daniel and his friends learn the key social skills necessary for school and life. As they closely follow and share Daniel’s everyday adventures, preschoolers and their families learn fun and practical strategies and skills necessary for growing and learning.

About MR. STEVE:

On TV during PBS KIDS programming, Steve Roslonek as Mr. Steve performs original interactive songs that reinforce the curriculum theme of shows like Curious George, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Super Why, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That and Peg + Cat. Roslonek, who performs across the country and has won numerous awards, has said he makes music that both kids and parents would enjoy and writes each of his songs to add value to a child’s life.

WSRE is one of four public television stations to partner with The Ounce of Prevention Fund’s Prevent Child Abuse Florida chapter to present this free community event focused on early learning along with health and safety resources for families with young children. Prevent Child Abuse Florida implements primary prevention activities and advocates for policies and initiatives to strengthen Florida’s families and communities so children can grow and develop through healthy, safe and nurturing experiences.
