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

I really want to like this but IT NEEDS AN EDITOR SO BAD I do not need to hear six times in six different contexts about how Fred stayed in an air conditioned room all summer one summer because his asthma was so bad I'm still reading it because I want to know But I really hope there's a little editing prior to the actual publication dateOR IS THIS JUST HOW AVERAGE ADULT NONFICTION READS I have been spoiled by the likes of the 57 Bus and Vincent and Theo
