Summary
An inspiring picture book biography about the inimitable Fred Rogers, beloved creator and star of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood .

Fred Rogers was a quiet boy with big feelings. Sometimes, he felt scared or lonely ; at other times, he was playful and joyous . But when Fred's feelings felt too big, his Grandfather McFeely knew exactly what to say to make him feel better: I like you just the way you are .

Fred grew up and created Mister Rogers' Neighborhood , the television program that would go on to warm the hearts and homes of millions of Americans. But one day, the government threatened to cut funding for public television, including Fred's show. So, Fred stepped off the set and into a hearing on Capitol Hill to make his feelings known.

In a portrait full of warmth and feeling, Laura Renauld and award-winning illustrator Brigette Barrager tell the story of Mister Rogers: a quiet, compassionate hero whose essential message--that it is okay to have and to express feelings--still resonates today.

This book is not associated with or authorized by Fred Rogers Productions.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Bright with primary colors and periodic bursts of cheerful hearts, Renauld's picture-book biography smoothly sums up the warmth of Fred Rogers, who is enjoying a renaissance of sorts as new generations discover his work and simple, folksy appeal. Concentrating on Fred's own feelings as an often-lonely child and an awkward but kind adolescent, Renauld draws readers to the heart of his legacy--his ability to tap into and validate what the young are experiencing, whether it be fear, happiness, anger, or love. Barrager's (Uni the Unicorn, 2014) illustrations focus on Rogers as the cheerful heart of each spread. They work, along with the narrative, to show readers how his early childhood interests--especially in music--combined with his passion for the medium of television, led to a lifetime vocation. Highlights of Rogers' career appear to reflect back on the need for children to know they are special just as they are. A long author's note at the end adds additional biographical material. A good addition to the growing number of books about Rogers' legacy."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Renauld (Porcupine's Pie) and Barrager (Uni the Unicorn) tell the story of Fred Rogers's childhood and rise to fame through the lens of emotions, explaining that the beloved PBS personality was "a quiet boy with big feelings." While young Freddy "felt sad when his schoolmates overlooked him," he grows into someone who "broadcasted affection, compassion, and respect for his audience." The earnest text, which uses italics to call out emotive words, occasionally feels aimed at a well-meaning adult audience: readers are told, for example, that Rogers wanted to "be more intentional about the content of his shows. The brightly colored, cartoon-style, gouache-and-pencil drawings chronicle the subject's life with whimsical details, such as confetti-like streams of hearts occasionally emanating from Rogers, his cast, guests (including Officer Clemmons and Koko the gorilla), and audience members as they connect with his message that "there's only one person in the whole world like you." Those seeking a tribute more reflective of Rogers's own soft-spoken grace may want to opt for Aimee Reed's You Are My Friend: The Story of Mister Rogers and His Neighborhood, but many families will welcome the affirming messages in this affectionate portrait. Ages 4--8. (Jan.)"
