The Good Neighbor: The life and work of Fred Rogers by Maxwell King. It would be a lie if I told you I’d been a fan of the Mr. Rogers program. If memory serves me correctly, my children and I preferred the colorful competition on PBS. However, after watching the fine documentary about Fred Rogers, I gained new insight which prompted me to read this biography.
I never realized what a multi-talented man Mr Rogers was! Truly, he was amazing. This memoir covered many of the highlights of the all too short life of the familiar man in cardigan sweaters and sneakers, a dedicated educator who cared deeply for children. Without doubt, he touched countless lives spreading his message that every child is special.
I am grateful to have read this biography and highly recommend it to my followers.
