Overall a fascinating account of a childhood icon for many of us. It's read by LeVar Burton (of course!).

Reading this book was a balm for my heart. If you're looking for a read about a good person trying his best to do good for his community, this is a very satisfying story. And the audio version read by LeVar Burton is an extra delight!

I'll be honest. I'm biased when it comes to anything Mister Rogers. Not only did I grow up watching, but my son has been watching reruns for the last several years. And I don't speak lightly when I say that Mister Rogers has changed our lives. You can find an episode for almost every single childhood fear. He has got us through shots, riding an airplane, haircuts, etc. While I enjoyed the documentary that came out earlier this year ("Won't You Be My Neighbor"), I was eager for the deep dive this book provided. Even if you aren't already a fan, this is a fascinating look at unique person and worldview that we could all use a little more of in our lives.

Without a doubt, Fred Rogers is an icon in the worlds of both children's television and child development. It was his passion to always do what is best for the children that really shines through in this comprehensive biography. Having seen the documentary that was released this year before reading the book was helpful to me in establishing a framework for processing information in this book. Many might find the documentary to be more helpful as this bio runs a bit on the long side and tends to be repetitious.
