Even though he's best known for his successful PBS series Mister Rogers' Neighbourhood, Fred Rogers never dreamed of working in television. In fact, he hated the very first program that he ever watched! Join author Diane Bailey as she takes readers through the journey that brought Mister Rogers into our living rooms. From his childhood interest in puppet-making and music, to his courageous visit to Russia during the Cold War, this book details Mister Rogers's quest for kindness and his gentle appeal to be more neighbourly.
Each title in this new series will be written by an experienced children's nonfiction author. The books will also be vetted by a subject consultant for accuracy, as well as an education/literacy consultant to ensure they are perfectly pitched and levelled for the readership.
