Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW**
"Writing with simplicity, emotional clarity, and a sense of purpose, Reid tells Fred Rogers' story in a meaningful, sometimes moving way. Phelan's fluid pencil-and-watercolor artwork brings that story to life on the page . . . A beautifully crafted, heartfelt picture-book biography."--Booklist
"A simply written, thoughtful tribute worthy of the incomparable Mister Rogers."--Kirkus Reviews
"A graceful, quietly moving biography."--Publishers Weekly
"The book has a gentle cadence that it's easy to imagine Fred Rogers' famous voice into . . . Phelan's pencil and watercolor art, casually impressionistic in its details, beams with soft warmth."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A quietly moving picture book biography about the origin story of Mister Rogers . . . it is an ideal time to introduce the next generation to the pure magic of Mister Rogers and his legacy. His enduring message to children of all ages--that you are enough, just as you are--can never be overstated."--School Library Journal
"The easy-to-read text is just right for those who may no longer watch Mister Rogers' Neighborhood but who would nevertheless appreciate a reassuring encounter with an old friend."--Horn Book Magazine
