Mia H. (moira) reviewed The World According to Mister Rogers: Important Things to Remember on
Helpful Score: 1
There is more to this man than many people know; I invite you to investigate. He has a way of saying things that you might take for granted, but that in many ways go against the dogma of our modern American society: it isn't a good idea to maintain a cheerful facade all the time; people feel freer to be themselves when they are assured of rules and boundaries than when they are allowed to do anything with no responsibility; every now and again you need to stop and recharge and rethink- you can't keep going 100% all the time.
There are many things to stop and think about from a man who dedicated his life to helping future generations develop their potential to the fullest and recognize the connection between all human beings.
Having grown up on "Mister Rogers Neighborhood" I remember he always had wise words for his viewers...advice...little nuggets of inspiration. This book has 4 "chapters". The Courage to Be Yourself; Understanding Love; The Challenges of Inner Discipline and We Are All Neighbors.
It is a great book to give as a gift, and one you will love to pick up time and time again.
Awesome tribute to Mr. Rogers! Takes me back to being 3 years old and waiting in anticipation for his show to start! This book reminded me of all those good feelings that I got from watching his show~That I was important, I mattered, and someone cared about me. Really a great read, for anyone!
"If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet;how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person."-From The world according to Mister Rogers
