Fred Rogers was a shy boy who loved playing with puppets, a determined young man who studied music and became a minister, and the host of a beloved public television show for kids called Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.
Discover the story of Fred Rogers to learn how a minister and musician from Pennsylvania became one of America's most cherished television personalities and everyone's favorite neighbor.
While he may be best known for his successful PBS series, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Fred Rogers wasn't a big fan of television from the start. Join Diane Bailey as she takes you through the journey that brought Mister Rogers into the television, an industry he despised. From his childhood fascination with puppet-making and music, to his brave visit to Russia during the Cold War, this book shows Mister Rogers's quest for kindness and his gentle appeal to be more neighborly.
