Mama Travels for Work

Adapted by Jill Cozza-Turner / Illustrated by Jason Fruchter

About The Book

A new generation of children love Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, inspired by the classic series Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood!

Daniel helps his friend Jodi Platypus when her mama has to go on a trip in this adorable 8x8 storybook based on an episode of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.

Daniel Tiger’s new neighbor, Jodi Platypus, is sad. Her mama has to go on a trip for work, but Jodi wants her to stay home so they can be together. Then Jodi’s mama tells her that grownups always come back, and it makes her feel a little better!

This sweet story includes a special count-the-days activity—a paper chain with one loop per day—to help children remember when their parent or guardian is coming home.
