Daniel Tiger and Miss Elaina are playing together when Miss Elaina unexpectedly gives Daniel a toy robot as a gift. There is no background for why Miss Elaina gives Daniel a gift, but Daniel becomes panicked trying to find something to give her in return. With encouragement from his mom, Daniel creates a homemade gift for his friend. She is elated by the gesture. Digital images from the television show accompany simple words with large, easy-to-read font that will entice beginning readers, though the story is lacking.
