Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A timeless collection of wisdom 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 American 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, letters, 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.

"The world needs a sense of worth, and it will achieve it only by its people feeling that they are worthwhile."

"The older I get, the more convinced I am that the space between communicating human beings can be hallowed ground."

"The more I think about it, the more I wonder if God and neighbor are somehow One. 'Loving God, Loving neighbor' — the same thing? For me, coming to recognize that God loves every neighbor is the ultimate appreciation!"

Review:

"Ultimately the book isn't for kids, it's for adults who watched the show as children...Rogers taught valuable lessons about playing make-believe, keeping one's promises, finding strength through helping others and not being afraid to cry." Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Fred Rogers, host of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood for over 30 years, earned a degree in music composition and was a floor manager at NBC-TV on their earliest shows. He studied at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Child Development and was an ordained Presbyterian minister with the unique charge to work with children and families through mass media.

Erica Horne, April 4, 2009 (view all comments by Erica Horne)
Like many adults, i grew up on Mr. Rogers and remember his TV shows and characters. This book is aptly subtitled- "important things to remember" and is a great collection of stories, anecdotes and thoughts on topics that matter like Love, relationships, individuals, respect and honesty. It help us remember what its like to be a good neighbor.
There is a foreword written by his wife which is very touching and the book is easy to read--each short anedote/saying is printed on a separate page. It would be a good idea to read a page a day and use that as the basis for "a thought for the day."

This book would make an ideal present for the coming holidays, especially for kids and for those who grew up with Mr. Rogers and didn't we all??
