Publisher's Summary

For more than 30 years, television's Mister Rogers taught children how to become confident, well-rounded adults. His simple yet profound philosophy is that each one of us is a special person full of unique talents and abilities, and that no two people are exactly alike. You Are Special is an inspiring collection of Fred Rogers' self-esteem boosting wisdom. Rogers also shares many private stories about his own challenges growing up, including the important role his grandfather and a few influential teachers played in his life.
Fred Rogers' short, easy-to-remember maxims and observations helped people of all ages make sense of a complicated world. Now that he is gone, this collection will remind you why he meant so much to you as a child. You Are Special will make sure you keep benefiting from his hopeful outlook on life.

One of the best audiobooks

To start I have over 300 audiobooks and this one has moved me the most . I've never thought so deeply or unashamed or cried so easily . Fred Rodgers in the 80's got me though my parents divorce and being a alone more frequent than not and now he's helping me deal with having a child with special needs. Thank you mr Rodgers I owe you my life

Short and Sweet

This book is really about development of children (and adults too really but they aren't mentioned) on how to nurture others and love them.

This book is simple, sweet and informative. It's quick to listen to and isn't bogged down with someone who just wants to show you their knowledge. He seems to really care and has simple ways of teaching about life. There's a happy sad reality to it.
