Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A timeless collection of wisdom on new beginnings from one of America's most beloved personalities, Fred Rogers.
Invaluable words of wisdom and sage advice for anyone embarking on a new journey in life — from the beloved author of The World According to Mister Rogers.
Fred Rogers has been an enduring presence in American homes for over 30 years as the beloved host of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, and his legacy of comforting, plainspoken advice continues in this new book. Culled from many of Fred Rogers' never-before published speeches, books, songs, commentary, and notes, these writings have been chosen for their intelligent insight, guidance, and assurance for those venturing forth into a new stage of their life, be it a graduation, a marriage, the birth of a child, or even the loss of a loved one.
"My hope for you at the beginning of this new moment in your life is that you will take good care of that part of you where your best dreams come from, that invisible part of you that allows you to look on yourself and your neighbor with delight. Do your best to appreciate the gifts that we really are and always will be . . . to look for every opportunity that allows you to clap and cheer, loving your neighbor as yourself."


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

Review:

"Anyone who misses the soothing presence of children's television veteran Fred Rogers, host for over 30 years of Mister Rogers's Neighborhood, will savor the morsels of wisdom in this collection of his inspirational quotes, lyrics and anecdotes. The second such collection published since his death in 2003, the book presents Rogers's thoughts on such themes as identity formation, relationships and spirituality. Each page offers a short but profound quote, capturing the simple eloquence that made him so beloved. Rogers's wife, Joanna, also contributes an affectionate foreword in which she reminisces about the show and describes the solace she still finds in her husband's words. Rogers's affirming messages, such as 'We all have different gifts, so we all have different ways of saying to the world who we are,' will make readers want to kick off their shoes, slip into their sweaters and enter the Neighborhood of Make-Believe for an afternoon. Readers of all ages will be inspired by this touching tribute to one of the most endearing television personalities of all time." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
