The World According to Mister Rogers by Fred Rogers

This is a pleasant, small little volume of inspirational quotes, thoughts or philosophies as spoken by Fred Rogers, the cardigan-bedecked genial host of the children’s TV show Mister Rogers Neighborhood. Over a lengthy career as a children’s educator, both on-screen and in hundreds of personal appearances, Fred Rogers had a huge impact of literally hundreds of thousands of both children and adults. His always-upbeat, always thought-provoking ideas are well represented in this little collection. Broken up into thematic sections based on such categories as Love, Friendship, Respect, Individuality and Honesty, the content of this book is nice to balance against the negative things occasionally surrounding us in our daily lives!
