Short and Sweet
The Wisdom, Quotes, and Piano of Mr. Rogers
Yes - it's an easy listen, full of inspiring quotes.
There are some great quotes in this book, but for me the most memorable aspect of the book is how Fred relays his experience of watching, listening, loving, and learning. So much of what you read in the parenting section today is based on formal research of children in "the lab".
If you've watched the television series, you'll recognize the material, the tone, and Mr. Rogers at the piano between chapters.
Thinking about life as a parent, this book challenges you to think about what you're doing.
