An inspiring collection of thoughts to take with us on the paths we travel in life.

For all the roads we choose to travel, and even those we don't, Fred Rogers has an observation, a story, some insights to share. Whether you're facing graduation, a new job, a new baby, marriage, any change in your life--expected or not--the wisdom that Mister Rogers offers can contribute mightily to the grace with which you handle the change.

With sections titled Who You Are Right Now, Loving and Being Loved, and Guided Drift, Fred addresses the scope of human transitions. It all comes down to knowing we're valuable, and that we're worthy of that value. As Fred would say, "You don't have to be anything more than who you are right now."

In her foreword, Joanne Rogers shares the Fred she knew. With stories from their life together, the joys as well as the struggles, Joanne shows how Fred looked at life as a journey--with the ups and downs and in-betweens.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Anyone who misses the soothing presence of children?s television veteran Fred Rogers, host for over 30 years of Mister Rogers?s Neighborhood, will savor the morsels of wisdom in this collection of his inspirational quotes, lyrics and anecdotes. The second such collection published since his death in 2003, the book presents Rogers?s thoughts on such themes as identity formation, relationships and spirituality. Each page offers a short but profound quote, capturing the simple eloquence that made him so beloved. Rogers?s wife, Joanna, also contributes an affectionate foreword in which she reminisces about the show and describes the solace she still finds in her husband?s words. Rogers?s affirming messages, such as ?We all have different gifts, so we all have different ways of saying to the world who we are,? will make readers want to kick off their shoes, slip into their sweaters and enter the Neighborhood of Make-Believe for an afternoon. Readers of all ages will be inspired by this touching tribute to one of the most endearing television personalities of all time. (Apr.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information."
