For the first time ever, beloved songs from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood are collected in this charmingly illustrated treasury, sure to be cherished by a new generation of children as well as the millions of adults who grew up with the show during its run from 1968 to 2001.
Through songs, puppets, and honest conversations, Mister Rogers instilled the values of kindness, patience, self-awareness, and self-esteem in his young viewers. But most of all, he taught children that they were loved, just by being who they were. With classics such as “It’s You I Like” and “Many Ways to Say I Love You” as well as dozens of others that range from funny to sweet, silly to sincere, the 75 songs in this collection deal with such universal topics as difficult feelings, new siblings, everyday routines, imagination, and more. Perfect for bedtime, sing-along, or quiet time alone, this beautiful book of meaningful poetry is the perfect gift for every child—including the child in every one of us.
