For all the roads we choose to travel, and even those we don’t, Fred Rogers has an observation, a story, some insights to share. Whether you’re facing graduation, a new job, a new baby, marriage, or any change in your life—expected or not—the wisdom that Mister Rogers offers can contribute mightily to the grace with which you handle the change.

Fred addresses the scope of human transitions. It all comes down to knowing we’re valuable, and that we’re worthy of that value. As Fred would say, “You don’t have to be anything more than who you are right now.”

In her foreword, Joanne Rogers shares the Fred she knew. With stories from their life together, the joys as well as the struggles, Joanne shows how Fred looked at life as a journey—with the ups and downs and in-betweens.

Known as “America’s favorite neighbor,” Fred Rogers dedicated his life to serving children through public television as creator, composer, writer, puppeteer, and host of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. He studied at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Child Development and was ordained a Presbyterian minister, with the unique charge of working with children and families through television. Fred Rogers’ relentless commitment to all that is best in people led to an astonishing array of honors, from induction into the Television Hall of Fame to the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Fred Rogers passed away in February 2003.

Family Communications, Inc. (FCI), founded by the late Fred Rogers in 1971 to produce Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and related projects, continues to expand its reach through early childhood trainings, publishing, and new technologies—perpetuating the values and philosophy of its founder.

    " I think I saw this book at Target shortly after it came out and decided to pick it up because I had loved Mr. Rogers as a child.

    It contains a collection of things he said and songs from the TV show. The forward by his wife is also nice as well (and I rarely read or like forwards). "

    " There is little better than this--or perhaps nothing better--when one is looking for either a wise psychologist, or a loving parent. Perhaps the former is always best as the latter anyhow. Each section, and each reading, is enough for a day's meditation or peace. "

    " This was a nice Christmas present from my mom. The best surprise was finding it was autographed by none other than Mr McFeely! It's a nice collection of quotes; nothing particularly earth shattering but a great mood lifter. Fred Rogers was my hero. Still is. "
