An easy read that will haunt you with its crip Rogerism. We grew up hearing him and now we can read his wisdom, learning the lessons we missed the first time around.

I finished this book in one hour and it was an hour well spent. What a unique view of the world Mr. Rogers had! An absolute must read for anyone who deals with children and for anyone who is remotely religious minded.

A lot of quotes with nothing really tying them together. I loved the show as a kid and was more interested in the 5 page biography of Rogers than the 200 pp. worth of quotes.

A nice small book and a very quick read. Fred Rogers is an American icon. Generations of children grew up listening to the wit and wisdom of this kind gentle man. This book is filled with his favorite quotes, wit, wisdom and thoughts. I enjoyed the inspirational quotes and messages from Fred Rogers.

Favorite Quote: "What matters isn't how a person's innerlife finally puts together the alphabet and numbers of his outerlife. What really matters is whether he uses the alphabet for thedeclaration of a war or the description of a sunrise---his numbersfor the final count at Buchenwald or the specifics of a brand-newbridge.""Love is like infinity. You can't have more or less infinity, and youcan't compare two things to see if they're 'equally infinite.'Infinity just is, and that's the way I think love is, too.""I hope you're proud of yourself for the times you've said 'yes,'when all it meant was extra work for you and was seemingly helpfulonly to somebody else.""A high school student wrote to ask" 'What wasthe greatest event in American history?' I can't say. However, Isuspect that like so many 'great' events, it was something verysimple and very quiet with little or no fanfare....""One of my wise teachers, Dr. William F. Orr, told me, 'There is onlyone thing evil cannot stand and that is forgiveness.'"

I absolutely love this book! What a treasure! I grew up watching Mister Rogers everyday when I came home from school. As I look back, I realize what a huge role he played in my life... from enjoying 'make-believe' to doing good to others. He had such a kind, gentle spirit that captivated children's interest in the life-lessons that he was really teaching. We need to get back to that simple way of life!I look forward to that day in Heaven, when I'll get to see my neighbor again! Thank you Mister Rogers! Love, Lisa :-)

As a child who grew up on Mister Rogers, I was thrilled to see this book. His words are wise counsel that, if heeded, would make this world a better place. This book is a wonderful tribute to the memory of the man who brightened my life and the lives of others.

Mr. Rogers was one of the world's greatest teachers. Ironically, a child in front of the TV, when Mr. Rogers is on the air, will learn priceless lessons that improve life tremendously and permanently. Adults now have more to gain from this little book of Mr. Rogers' wisdom. Biographical information is interesing too. Here's to a brilliant, kind, special man. Let us all read his book and improve.

I loved Mr Rogers' Neighborhood as a kid. I never stopped loving it. When I'm home sick from work, the only thing I want to do is lie on the couch with my Kleenex box and watch the reruns on PBS. The same wonderful comfort comes from this book. Just like you see in the TV show, Fred Rogers was quite simply a good person. This books helps remind you that you too can and should be a good person! I wish I could give it six stars. Oh, here, I will ****** :)
