Description

He was their neighbor, their friend. And for over 30 years, Fred Rogers visited so quietly with the children of America that nobody dreamed he was a Presbyterian minister. Using puppets instead of a pulpit, this icon of children's television shared with America's youngsters the basic principles of the Christian faith -- forgiveness, kindness, compassion, respect -- and made those values real for his audience.

In this poignant book, a longtime friend of Mister Rogers reveals how this extraordinary man touched her and her family through years of correspondence -- and takes us beyond the camera to discover the spiritual legacy of a man who, to paraphrase the words of St. Francis of Assisi, "preached the gospel at all times, and when necessary, used words."
