More then just a children's television show host, Mister Rogers was the friend who helped us appreciate the good things in ourselves, in others, and in the world around us. As soon as he stepped through his front door to change into his cardigan and sneakers, we knew we would meet new people and discover new things. Revisit some of Mister Rogers' greatest guidance that we learned alongside Daniel Tiger, X the Owl, King Friday the XIII, Henrietta Pussycat, and more.

As I read 'Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood', with wistfulness and a bit of melancholy, I lost a piece of my heart .

I simply have to repeat everything I said about 'You Are My Friend: The Story of Mister Rogers and His Neighborhood' by Aimee Reid: "I feel so lucky that my boys were raised in an age/era that allowed Mr. Rogers to be the wonderful friend of so many lucky, lucky children. 'You Are My Friend: The Story of Mister Rogers and His Neighborhood' is a testament to that. It's sad that young children today aren't exposed to his gentle honesty and integrity, in an era when they need it most."

I'd add to that his lessons about courage, patience, gratitude and so much more.

The best thing about 'Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood' is that, while it is ostensibly for adults, it's a wonderful way for children to learn as their parents gently read to them about this kind, gentle man.

To the best of my knowledge, the Seattle affiliate of PBS does not air any of the Mr. Rogers Neighborhood shows anymore. Shame on them. What a great disservice to parents and children. You should demand it, especially since our tax dollars pay for it.

Melissa Wagner has compiled a delightful collection of wisdoms from our favorite neighbor, Mister Rogers. Accented with illustrations by Max Dalton that feel straight from the pages of the Golden Books of yore. This read is an excellent heartwarming pick-me-up for anyone of any age, highly recommend!
