This book was awesome. Mister Rogers has such a great perspective of developing children. I learned a lot - some of which I used helping Sam deal with Tommy's surgery.

They need a lot of guidance and love to help learn about this big world.

Shelves: baby
Mr. Rogers continues to be an amazing influence on my life even now that I am now the Parent and no longer the child! I recommend this book to ANYONE who ever has any kind of connection with a child.
This is a good one. Mister Rogers is a hero for our times.
