Today is National Grandparents Day! A day meant for us to reflect on the grandparents we have in our lives and take the time to show them some appreciation for the things they do, and the wisdom they share with us.
To celebrate the occasion, we’re shining a light on an amazing grandparent from Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood: Grandpere! Daniel loves his Grandpere, and they get up to quite a bit of fun when they spend time together.
