On My Bookshelf [The World According to Mr. Rogers]

With all that is going on in our country and world lately, Mr. Rogers helps to put things into perspective.  It might sound trite or naive, but it's true.  He is a true favorite of mine and pulling his book off the shelf the other night helped to remind me of all the good that is in each of us.


The World According to Mister Rogers: Important Things to Remember was a gift from a dear friend who knows what huge fan I am.  It's also one I have given several times as gifts, either for graduation or a loving little pick me up.  This particular evening, the chapter entitled "We Are All Neighbors" was particularly poignant.

Amazon says:
A timeless collection of wisom on love, friendship, respect, individuality, and honesty from the man who has been a friend to generations of Americans.

There are few personalities who evoke such universal feelings of warmth as Fred Rogers.  An enduring presence in Amercan homes for over 30 years, his plainspoken wisdom continues to guide and comfort many.  The World According to Mister Rogers distills the legacy and singular worldview of this beloved American figure.  An inspiring collection of stories, anecdotes, and insights -- with sections devoted to love, friendship, respect, individuality, and honesty, The World According to Mister Rogers reminds us that there is much more in life that unites us than divides us.

Culled from Fred Rogers' speeches, program transcripts, books, letter, and interviews, along with some of his never-before-published writings, The World According to Mister Rogers is a testament to the legacy of a man who served and continues to serve as a role model to millions.

Happy Reading!

  1. It's a favorite of mine too. I still remember listening to him sing the opening song while putting on his tennies and sweater.


Thanks so much for buzzing by! I look forward to hearing from you!
