A timeless collection of wisdom on new beginnings from one of America’s most beloved personalities, Fred Rogers.
Invaluable words of wisdom and sage advice for anyone embarking on a new journey in life — from the beloved author of The World According to Mister Rogers.
Fred Rogers has been an enduring presence in American homes for over 30 years as the beloved host of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, and his legacy of comforting, plainspoken advice continues in this new book. Culled from many of Fred Rogers’ never-before published speeches, books, songs, commentary, and notes, these writings have been chosen for their intelligent insight, guidance, and assurance for those venturing forth into a new stage of their life, be it a graduation, a marriage, the birth of a child, or even the loss of a loved one.
“My hope for you at the beginning of this new moment in your life is that you will take good care of that part of you where your best dreams come from, that invisible part of you that allows you to look on yourself and your neighbor with delight. Do your best to appreciate the gifts that we really are and always will be . . . to look for every opportunity that allows you to clap and cheer, loving your neighbor as yourself.”
In her introduction, Joanne Rogers once again shares the Fred Rogers she knew. With stories from their life together, the joys as well as the struggles, Joanne shows how Fred looked on life as a journey — with the ups and downs and in-betweens.
