Miss Emilie, The Poetry Lady

First MRN Appearance: 0075
Last MRN Appearance: 1017
Performed By: Emilie Jacobson

Miss Emilie, the Poetry Lady, has been around the Neighborhood since the days of the Children's Corner when she taught Daniel Striped Tiger his favorite poem ("Be the Best of Whatever You Are" by Douglas Malloch).

Later, Miss Emilie appeared in both the real Neighborhood and the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Typically, her visits with Mister Rogers included the reciting of a poem.

Her poetry was featured as a main part of the royal wedding ceremony.[1] Additionally, Miss Emilie was instrumental in finding someone to take over the Museum-Go-Round when the Frogg family left the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.[2] She is a proud grandmother to two granddaughters -- Miriam and Naomi.[3]
