It's filled with great stories of Mr. Rogers' childhood, family life, and many accomplishments--encouraging us all to love ourselves just the way we are while going for our dreams." --Andrew Jordan Nance, author of Puppy Mind, The Lion in Me, The Barefoot King, and Mindful Arts in the Classroom

"This book provides a wonderfully real look into the life of Fred Rogers. I like that the author includes facts that help readers to see that Mr. Rogers was a real, down-to-earth person with flaws just like everyone else. She also does a great job of highlighting how important he was in improving access to learning for millions of children. He wasn't just a beloved television personality; he truly did seek to make his community and ultimately the world a better place. There is a glossary of terms at the back of the book which helps young readers to build their vocabulary as well. Inspirational and heartwarming. Recommend." --Jean K.

"This is a wonderful bio of Fred Rogers. I have been pleased with this series, and Fred Rogers is a wonderful role model with a positive message. Susan B. Katz does a fabulous job of writing the content. This series does a good job of dividing content into manageable bites and sections. The thought questions for this book are especially interesting. A child with knowledge of Mr. Rogers would find this book fascinating, and I can just about guarantee Mom and Dad are going to read it too. Highly recommended." --E. Burton, ESOL teacher and writer
