A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood: The Poetry of Mister Rogers | Fred Rogers
6 posts | 5 read | 6 to read
For the first time ever, the beloved songs from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood are collected here in a charmingly-illustrated treasury, sure to be cherished by adults who grew up with Mister Rogers, and a new generation of children alike. Mister Rogers' Neighborhood had a revolutionary impact on children's television, and on millions of children themselves. Through songs, puppets, and frank conversations, Mister Rogers instilled the values of kindness, patience, and self-esteem in his viewers, and most of all, taught children how loved they were, just by being themselves. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood reimagines the songs from the show as poetry, ranging from the iconic ("Won't You Be My Neighbor?") to the forgotten gems. The poem are funny, sweet, silly, and sincere, dealing with topics of difficult feelings, new siblings, everyday routines, imagination, and more. Perfect for bedtime, sing-along, or quiet time, this book of nostalgic and meaningful poetry is the perfect gift for every child--including the child in all of us.

I listened to this as an audiobook read by John Lithgow and it was amazing and so relaxing. ?

Excellent book to read with your kids and a great reminder to those of us "older" kids, that sometimes all it takes to change how good/bad a day is going is a simple act of kindness.

Most of these poems/songs I remember from watching the show as a child, and hearing them again put me in a very happy place. ???

Being from Pittsburgh, Mister Rogers truly holds a place in my heart for all time. Could not resist picking this up.

rretzler I‘ll never forget my visit to the set when I was 4-5 - I think it may have been before the show went national. Didn‘t get to meet Mr Rogers, but I did get to meet Mr McFeely and Betty Aberlin, plus Trolley and all the puppets. Being from Pittsburgh, do you also remember Paul Shannon‘s Adventure Time? 4mo

vkois88 Oh, I just saw an ad for this the other day... I will be adding it to LO's collection. We occasionally watch the original and she also loves Daniel Tiger. 4mo
Sara_Planz @rretzler I do remember that as well no worked at the Pittsburgh Children‘s Museum and I have such fond memories of the set being in display there. It was always my happy place. 4mo

#LitsyWalkers is serving as my motivation to get hubby and me back into a regular walking routine. I don‘t #audiowalk because we walk together. Today was just a perfect day for an extended walk through part of our neighborhood we don‘t usually visit. I‘m using the active minutes that my Fitbit credited me for the number challenge from @kaye . Another number is 1.8 miles, really great for hubby with his orthopedic problems.

Kaye Great job , Lynn. To you AND your husband. You both got golden stars today. 🌟🌟. Those Fitbits look really handy. 5mo
Lynnsoprano @kaye I‘ve had one for about 5 years now. I don‘t have one of the real fancy ones, but I get steps, miles, active minutes, and an estimate of calories burned. And if I haven‘t gotten at least 250 steps in an hour, I get a reminder 10 minutes to the hour. It‘s made a difference for me. 5mo
Kaye Sounds neat ! Maybe I‘ll get one someday. 5mo
DarcysMom Excellent! I love my fitbit! 5mo

Love this book of poems and songs from Mr. Rogers. I wish I could remember the tunes to all the songs. Comes out in mid-March.

Thank you to Quirk Books for sending me an advance copy of "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.”

As a child of the 70‘s, Mr. Rogers was ever-present. I didn‘t realize how much I‘d missed him until I read through some familiar & some new, passages in this poetry. His gentle sentiments are needed as today, especially with loud abrasive technology permeating childhood.

I‘ve wrapped this for my niece for Christmas & I hope she‘ll love it as well.

tracey38 I grew up with Mr. Rogers and loved him. 7mo
