|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Many Ways To Say I Love You (Book & Record)
Officially titled Fred Rogers Writes and Sings About Many Ways to Say I Love You for People Who Care About Children, this book is made up of two separate parts. The first half is dedicated to the lyrics of seven of Mister Rogers' songs. For each song, there is a page featuring the lyrics and a page with a message from Mister Rogers to the adults reading the book. The second half of the book contains the official sheet music for each of these songs.
In addition to the lyrics and sheet music, the inside cover holds a 33 1/3 RPM floppy record with audio recording of Mister Rogers singing each of these songs as well.
What is especially interesting about this book is its religious theme. This book is very clearly written from a Christian viewpoint and does not attempt to mask or water down the faith of Fred Rogers. While the messages from Mister Rogers to adults throughout the book are focused on religious topics, the back cover of the book summarizes this publication's intent most clearly:
