Meet the Author

Producer, magician, writer, puppeteer, minister, husband, father, Fred Rogers started out in children's television thirty years ago. The direction he trailblazed was the "creation of television programming that spoke, with respect, to the concerns of early childhood, not as adults see it but as children feel it."

He has received virtually every major award in the television industry for work in his field, and dozens of others from special-interest groups.

Fred Rogers lives in Pennsylvania.

As anyone who knows me will attest, I've been brokenhearted since Mr. Rogers left us. Open this book at random, and you will see why. This man went through his life handing out love, compassion, solace and grace. He was there to ease our fears about school, doctors, new friends...The list is endless. What I found most wonderful about reading these letters as an adult was that he was also there for the grown ups. For every child's letter about losing a sibling ("Mr. Roger's, did you know our baby died?" asked one little girl) he sent his compassion to their parents, as well. His words to grieving parents were so simple and so perfect. I'll be honest with you...I'm still a bit annoyed with him for dying. I know, I know. But, I'm just saying...
