Overview

How do you get to know someone in a wheelchair? Is it okay to ask questions when you see someone who is different from you?

Written for the child without special needs--the child with the questions--this book opens up a difficult subject to discussion. Mister Rogers challenges the stereotypes that often plague children with special needs and celebrates six children who are extraordinary friends. Share this book with all children--to spark communication, to attack the stigma, to bridge the gap between children with different abilities. Mister Rogers is the perfect person to write a book like this, with respect and the same gentleness that has characterized his television show for decades. "Rogers offers caring support and validation...Books that offer such honest reassurance are rare."-- Publishers Weekly

Focuses on people who are different, who might use equipment such as wheelchairs or special computers, who are more like you than you might think, and suggests ways to interact with them.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Using Mr. Rogers' ability to communicate in an understanding manner to youngsters, this "Let's Talk About It" book tackles the more commonly occurring situation of step or blended families. With photographs of real families, Mr. Rogers, in his own words, discusses the issues of adapting to change, conflicting feelings of anger and love, fears about a child's place in the familiy, and suggestions for making the transition less traumatic. Although aimed at the child, the book provides insight and encouragement to adults involved in understanding the many feelings a child is experiencing.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3This title, written in simple language and accompanied by full-color photographs, offers a reassuring discussion of stepfamilies. Rogers shows compassion and an understanding of young children as he stresses the importance of communication and the sharing of feelings. He sets the tone by talking about the small changes in a child's life, such as birthdays, starting school, and making new friends. Gradually, he addresses the inevitable changes a family goes through when a parent remarries. Nothing is sugarcoated, and many concerns that children face in stepfamily situations are raised: getting used to new rules and taking orders from a stepparent who is "not my real mother." For Rogers, it is important that children talk about their feelings and share their fears. He tries to make them aware of different kinds of lovelove for family members, friends, and petsand that it is natural to feel confused and scared. A gentle, upbeat presentation that will both answer most questions and prompt others.Denise Furgione, Franklin Township Public Library, NJ
