From Amazon:

As a shy, young boy, Fred Rogers found comfort in telling stories through puppets. When television grew in popularity, he knew he wanted to create a show that encouraged kindness and goodness. His show Mister Rogers' Neighborhood shaped modern television and cemented his legacy.

This friendly, fun biography series inspired the PBS Kids TV show Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum. One great role model at a time, these books encourage kids to dream big.

Included in each book are:

  • A timeline of key events in the hero’s history
  • Photos that bring the story more fully to life
  • Comic-book-style illustrations that are irresistibly adorabl
  • Childhood moments that influenced the hero 
  • Facts that make great conversation-starters
  • A virtue this person embodies: Fred Rogers' success through kindness is highlighted.


Based on a 2019 episode of Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum.
