I recently saw the documentary Won t You Be My Neighbor and absolutely loved it Like weeping in the middle of a crowded theater type of love which kinda caught me off guard because although I watched Mister Rogers Neighborhood growing up it wasn t exactly must see tv for me But learning about this man and how much good he put into the world just really brought up all these emotions in me While the film focused primarily on the tv show this book is the definitive Fred Rogers biography to date I was happy to learn about his childhood and what events and people helped shape him into such a special man And yes I teared up reading this book as well This is definitely a very thorough biography as it explores his childhood education the family he raised with his wife and of course his career There were two things that really stood out to me in particular The first being he came from a family that was very wealthy but incredibly generous to friends employees and other people in need For sure being raised in that type of environment ended up having a positive effect on him and the type of man he became The second thing I found interesting in the book was the talk about Sesame Street I guess I never really had thought about it before how the two shows had very different styles and how because Sesame Street is marketed in a different way it probably will have the enduring legacyOverall I was very pleased with this biography As is mentioned in the book you aren t going to find any dirt on Fred I think the most that can be said about him is he was passionate about his work which might have led to some disagreements He really was just a good man A man who might have come across as very simple but put a tremendous amount of effort and thought into everything he did As he is famous for saying Look for the helpers You will always find people who are helping Thank you Mr Rogers for always being a helper

READ The Good Neighbor The Life and Work of Fred Rogers · PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook FREE DOWNLOAD Å PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ä Maxwell King The definitive biography of Fred Rogers children’s television pioneer and American cultural icon an instant New York Times bestseller  Fred Rogers 1928–2003 was an enormously influential figure in the history of television As the creator and star of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood he was a champion of compassion e. I grew up watching Mister Rogers Neighborhood and suffice it to say most Americans who turned five by 2001 probably did as well My husband watched the program to help him with his English when he first came to this country Mister Rogers is by all accounts an American icon so when I saw on my goodreads feed a few months back that a new biography on Fred Rogers would be published this year I knew that it was a book I just had to read The Good Neighbor written by a longtime Rogers acuaintance Maxwell King allows readers to meet the Fred Rogers from off the air It was a nostalgic trip and has become one of the highlights of my reading yearFred Rogers grew up as an only child loved by his parents and grandparents until the age of eleven when his parents adopted a girl who they always wanted A chubby kid who was often ridiculed by his peers Rogers turned to a make believe world of puppets to help him get through his childhood His parents and maternal grandparents had grown wealthy through hard work and achieved their personal American dream becoming among the wealthiest members of the Latrobe Pennsylvania community in which they lived Fred s mother taught both kindness and philanthropy giving selflessly to all the needy families in their church and outside community Fred would accompany his mother to New York City each December on trips to buy gifts for the community as well as for his family Yet young Fred was still ridiculed at school sometimes for his appearance other times for his wealth and he stood out His parents kept him home for stretches of a time and it was there that he honed his skills as a puppeteer and musician that would feature on his signature children s program many decades later Fred Rogers eventually graduated from Rollins College where he also met his future wife Joanne The couple both majored in music with Fred also studying French and maintaining a lifelong correspondence with many of his professors from the school Fred had desired to go into the ministry but he knew his calling was young children During the 1950s the few programs marketed toward children were variety hours as the Howdy Doody Show and Kukla Fran and Ollie While these hours on the new medium of television were fun and upbeat Fred Rogers envisioned himself ministering to children and their parents through television Through connections from his grandfather Rogers gained an internship at fledgling station NBC in New York where he began his professional career however as a young college graduate he was not given space to be creative and eventually moved to a local station in Pittsburgh where for the next decade he would develop behind the scenes a cutting edge program for children with help from local early education specialists and ministers This show named the Fred Rogers Hour was the first of its kind and would endure for decades Fred Rogers loved all people just the way they were That was the message he broadcast on his show later known as Mister Rogers Neighborhood for decades Rogers signature program ran for the better part of four decades He combined his knowledge of music puppeteering early childhood education and ministry to create a safe place for children from all walks of life While Rogers counterpart Sesame Street was considered fast paced and fun lasting a whole hour Rogers developed a theme and ran with it for a half hour for an entire week He spent hours in writing and meeting with the production team to develop each show his work often lasting an entire day Rogers discussed themes as divorce death of a loved one or pet childhood disability and interracial relationships at a time when these topics were not discussed on television in any capacity Diffusing difficult situations with his puppets in the land of make believe and light hearted songs Rogers reached the heart of his viewers making growing up just a little easier for them in the half hour he had with the children each day While many doubted that Rogers could create a ministry on live television and were reluctant to ordain him Mister Rogers television persona has endured over multiple generations It is the safe place for children that at times Fred Rogers himself did not have growing up which is why it is always a beautiful day in his neighborhood During the World Series this year Fox aired a commercial for Pixel 3 featuring a Fred Rogers voice over having his uestion how the world works It was told through the eyes of a child and was a refreshing breath of fresh air in this world we now live in that is connected by media and a twenty four hour news cycle What would he make of his program being available on platforms as Netflix and YouTube and phones that take pictures of everything in the flash of an eye There are times when I want to go to Mister Rogers Neighborhood to visit the bakery the library and discuss life with the mail carrier Earning the Presidential Medal of Freedom during his lifetime Fred Rogers ministry has truly endured making him an American treasure and an underrated American icon of the 20th century 5 star read
