You Are Special
The children are putting on a show at school today, each doing something that makes them special. O the Owl wants to be just like the others and, with a little encouragement, he learns that owls are special too.
Daniel Is Special
Daniel and Dad take a fall walk through the neighborhood, admiring the colors of the leaves. On their way, they meet Miss Elaina and O the Owl who each do special things that make Daniel wonder if he is as special as they are. Dad reminds Daniel of the things that make him special, like his whimsical imagination!
No Red Sweater for Daniel
Daniel is getting ready for the day and can't find his red sweater anywhere! Mom tells Daniel that it's in the wash, so he'll just have to find something else to wear. Daniel puts on a blue sweater and is concerned that he looks so different; how does he know he's still HIM? Mom assures him that no matter what you wear or how different you appear, you're always still YOU on the inside.
Teacher Harriet's New Hairdo
Daniel goes to school and finds that something is different: his teacher! But wait…it IS Teacher Harriet, only with a different hairstyle. Daniel is hesitant at first but soon comes to understand that even though we can all change how we look on the outside, we're still the same on the inside.
Same and Different
While Daniel is playing dress up with his friends at school, he feels different when he realizes that not everyone has a tail like him. He learns that everyone has differences, but that these are the things that make us unique.
Tutu All the Time
Katerina is wearing her favorite sparkly tutu at school today! She likes to wear it all the time, even when she's painting and playing "grizzly bear" with her friends. But she soon learns how important it is to choose the proper clothes for the things you want to do.
Daniel Thinks of Others
Daniel is making all kinds of art at school today. While making a picture for his family, he ends up using ALL of the glitter. Oh no! What if someone else needs some glitter? Teacher Harriet tells Daniel that it will be okay, but to always keep in mind that whatever you do, you should think about what other people might need, too.
Daniel Thinks of What Margaret Needs
Daniel and Miss Elaina want to play their musical instruments and march all around the house, but Margaret needs to sleep and it would be way too noisy! Mom and Dad remind Daniel that he should be aware of how the things he does might affect the needs of others.
