What the Critics Say

Audie Award Winner, Inspirational/Spiritual, 2004
"Reminds readers that before we learned everything we needed to know in kindergarten, or had our first taste of chicken soup for the soul, Rogers taught valuable lessons about playing make-believe, keeping one's promises, finding strength through helping others, and not being afraid to cry." (Publishers Weekly)

Sound-bytes and Snippets

This book isn't quite what I was expecting. There are a handful of celebrity narrators taking turns sharing snippets and sound-bytes of Fred Rogers wisdom, mixed with a speech Fred presented at an awards event, and a touching foreword by Fred's wife about her life with Fred. All-in-all, not a bad book - just more of a background montage than a story.
