Overview

This program is a collection of segments from never-before-published speeches and observations from Fred Rogers years of working with parents and children, as well as other published materials from books, songs, TV commentary, and more. Using stories from his own life, Rogers discusses the importance of children and the role of parents. Included in the collection: A lot of the ways that I feel and a lot of the things that I offer have their roots in the care my early caregivers gave to me. Parents are like shuttles on a loom. They join the threads of the past with the threads of the future and leave their own bright patterns as they go, providing continuity to succeeding ages.... Those of us who are in this world to educateto care forchildren have a special calling: a calling which has very little to do with the collection of expensive possessions, but has a lot to do with the worth inside of heads and hearts. In fact, thats our domain: the heads and hearts of the next generation: the thoughts and feelings of the future.
