“Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Allergies at School”
Daniel is celebrating the 100th day at school. He tells Teacher Harriet and his friends that he is allergic to peaches.

“Arthur: Binky Goes Nuts”
When Binky discovers that he’s allergic to peanuts, he has so many questions: will he be forced to live without Chinese food? Will he ever again be able to eat with his friends? And most importantly, will his Mom ever calm down? Binky learns that the best way not to go nuts is to be well informed, and to understand his allergy.
“Peg + Cat: The Allergy Problem”
When Peg is told she’s allergic to Cat, Cat leaves home! Ramone flies Peg around the world in his flying machine that runs on 100 pebbles, in search of her friend.
Pig is allergic to peaches! Too bad Sheep doesn’t know that! When she brings Pig a big bag of peaches to make pies, Pig starts sneezing so much that he can’t even tell Sheep what he really needs is a…a…apples. Sheep tries to guess what Pig needs, imagining a silly array of a-sounding words!
Our Thoughts: I am the mom to a child with a tree nut allergy so I really appreciate this DVD. Helping kids navigate and understand what it is like to have an allergy is so helpful. Having allergies can be very scary for a child and the more that they and their friends can understand what is happening the better. Having allergies explained by the gentle characters of PBS Kids is truly delightful and I would absolutely recommend this DVD to all families and I think it would also make an important addition to school libraries. You can purchase the DVD in stores now or on Amazon...
