Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Anyone-child or adult-who has watched Mister Rogers' Neighborhood knows there's something special about the host of that long-running series, qualities of warmth and attentiveness that translate very well into this brief yet thorough parenting guide. "Parenting is about growing. It's about our own growing as much as our children's growing," writes Rogers in the introduction, and what follows pursues that understanding. Nobody's perfect, but parents can get better at their vital job, step by step; the best way to do that, Rogers suggests, is for adults to understand their own childhoods. Divided into Everyday Experiences (Choosing Playthings, Making Friends, etc.), First Experiences (Using the Toilet, Going to the Dentist, etc.) and Special Challenges (Tragic Events in the News, Stepfamilies, etc.), the book covers most of the major areas of concern to parents of young children and emphasizes that parenting can be a source of great joy. The advice is firm, practical and kind: "Let your child know that it's okay if he or she doesn't fall asleep right away, but that it's important to stay in bed." Each chapter runs four pages and begins with an encouraging anecdote from an anonymous parent. A brief boxed story by Rogers illuminates the chapter's lesson, which concludes with "Helpful Hints"; the presentation gains a touch of whimsy from the bold blue drawings scattered throughout. Parents can, and will, trust this wise and helpful book. $25,000 ad/promo; 75,000 first printing. (Nov.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Mr Rogers...We will always remember your wisdom and caring gentle ways

    I am still so very sad that we lost Mr Rogers this week. I don't think that anyone could ever take his place. I bought this lovely book (the last one that he wrote) to keep him close to me as I bring up my own kids. I never seem to find the time to read self-help books cover to cover, but occasionally my husband and I need a friendly reference guide to help restore our sanity relating to worrisome issues with our children. Each subject addressed in Mr. Roger's book is only a few pages long. I have always been comfortable (both as a child and now as a parent myself) with Mr. Rogers' wonderful, calm, kind way of getting across information while maintaining authority and dignity at all times. And, whether you are the child or the parent, you are confident that he is "on your side" rather than "on your back" with a sincere understanding of your feelings. This newest book offers clearly organized information on a variety of parental concerns with compassion, experience, and humor. I especially like the information explaining how to talk to kids about special challenges including tragic events. Additionally, if you have preschoolers, I wish to recommend The Pocket Parent, an A-Z guidebook with the same easy, friendly style, but written exclusively for the preschool years (ages 2 through 5). It's very convenient to quickly look up a troublesome behavior...Anger, Bad Words, Bedtime, Biting, "Gimmes", Hitting, Interrupting, Listening, Lying, Mealtime, Potty Training, Tantrums, Time-Outs and more. I keep both of these books handy--ready to give me some strategies to try... along with a much needed "verbal hug" when I'm just about at my wits' end with the kids. Neither book is preachy nor condescending. The authors include humorous anecdotes that truly hit home from beginning to end. I highly recommend both helpful reference books for the early years. And to you Mr. Rogers, thanks for always giving kids hope for the future-emphasizing the thought that most people in the world are good and that you like all of us just the way we are!
