About the Book

Since his death in February 2003, the outpouring of affection for Fred Rogers has been overwhelming. He was familiar to millions as the host of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and adored by children and adults alike. But most people don’t know that Fred Rogers was also an ordained minister who made it his life’s mission to work with families and inspire people every day. In fact, all proceeds from the sales of this book will go to the Fred Rogers’ Fund, which continues Fred Rogers’ work around the country to promote the healthy emotional, social, and intellectual development of children. THE WORLD ACCORDING TO MISTER ROGERS is a collection that testifies to Fred Rogers’ deep intelligence about human nature – no matter the age of the person. His writings are featured in sections on Love, Friendship, Respect, Individuality, Honesty, Education and Reassurance. In his speeches, transcripts and interviews, Fred Rogers exposed his true self in order to help us understand that there is much more that unites us than divides us. Some passages include: “The older I get, the more convinced I am that the space between communicating human beings can be hallowed ground.” “The world needs a sense of worth, and it will achieve it only by its people feeling that they are worthwhile.”

Excerpts

Discovering the truth about ourselves is a lifetime's work, but it's worth the effort.
