Description

Over the course of his career, Fred Rogers revolutionized children’s television and changed how experts thought about the educational power of media. But perhaps his most lasting legacy was the demonstration of the power of kindness in his beloved Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. In the interviews featured in this collection -- including Rogers's fiery (for him) 1969 Senate testimony that saved PBS, an early-career conversation with Terry Gross, and his final interview with Diane Rehm -- Rogers discusses music, family, his faith, and his passion for children's well-being. Most striking, however, is Rogers's compassionate and gentle spirit that continues to inspire.
