Every question a child or parent asks is important, and no one understands this better than the television Neighbor who has visited our homes for decades.

With sincerity and sensitivity, real-life issues are addressed in chapters arranged by theme—the world, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, feelings and fears, television, family relationships, and death. Based on his lifelong studies in child development, Fred Rogers offers a thoughful perspective on childhood and parenting.
Dear Mister Rogers is an inspiration to parents and educators and a delight for all those interested in the unique way children see the world and wonder about it.

About the author (1996)

Producer, magician, writer, puppeteer, minister, husband, father, Fred Rogers started out in children's television thirty years ago. The direction he trailblazed was the "creation of television programming that spoke, with respect, to the concerns of early childhood, not as adults see it but as children feel it."

He has received virtually every major award in the television industry for work in his field, and dozens of others from special-interest groups.

Fred Rogers lives in Pennsylvania.
