Most Helpful Customer Reviews
It's hard to navigate the temperamental relationships of early childhood relationships. Mr. Rogers has a gift of expressing and validating young children's feelings. The words are so simple and so profound. The pictures, which I thought were perhaps a little old fashioned for my daughter, actually sparked questions, thoughts and conversation. It's helpful to have this book on the shelf when your child is having a tough time with friends.
