”Grandparents are both our past and our future. In some ways, they are what has gone before; in others, they are what we will become.” At its heart, this is a book aimed at parents, but applicable to all ages and shared with the signature nurturing wisdom and loving advice from the heart of Mister Rogers. My first exposure to Mr. Rogers was when my oldest was in those toddler years, and it must have come on the television after Sesame Street. He fell deep under the spell of Mr. Rogers and his Neighborhood of Make Believe characters, Lady Aberlin and Mr. McFeely, and the rest, but it was Mr. Rogers that truly captured him. I didn’t get it until one day when I turned it on for him and he clapped his hands together and pointed and said “Popper!” He thought my father was Mr. Rogers. It was a while before we were over at my parents when the show was on and my Dad was home and not flying somewhere, but one day when he was home, I told my Dad to come into the family room so I could show him, and I turned the show on and my son clapped and said “Popper” as he’d typically do, and I laughed, and said “He thinks you’re Mr. Rogers” and my dad paused and watched him change into his sneakers and said, “Huh… now I understand.” I looked at him questioningly, and he explained that for a couple of years the passengers on his flights had been asking him where his sweater and sneakers were. For me, Fred Rogers is more than just Mr. Rogers, he’s tied to a memory to begin with, but in the interim I’ve read a bit about him, and watched the PBS show dedicated to him after his passing and my appreciation of his pursuit for a better, more emotionally healthy environment for all children is something I wish for, as well. Originally published in 2006, this is a very slim 192 pages with some of those pages having a single quote, and others a story that covers a few pages - making it easy to put down if time is an issue, or easily read in a day, and yet remain a focus long after you close the pages. Many thanks for the ARC provided by Hachette Books

I really enjoyed Many Ways to Say I Love You by Fred Rogers. I thought it was cute and heartwarming. I thought it made good points about raising children and learning to deal with different emotions - children and adults alike. The book as a whole though was much shorter than I expected with not much meat to the different topics he covered. It's a very cute book but not as educational as I had expected.

I've always been a Mr Rogers fan so it is very easy for me to tell you how much I enjoyed this book. The life's lessons he taught to so many generations are still alive today. While this a quick read...or it was for me...you will find yourself returning to the book many times just to have that warm, safe feeling that Mr Rogers built for us.

Many Ways to Say I love You by Fred Rogers is a heartwarming compilation of quotes, speeches, ante dotes, words of wisdom, and selected memories by Mr, Fred McFeely Rogers himself. Some are of his own doing, others are from some of his friends and mentors. I especially enjoyed the forward written by his wife. I also enjoyed the followup with a short biography of his life and a statement from the company he founded “Family Communications, Inc). I grew up with Mr. Rogers and I still feel as if he is a family member and friend vs a person on TV. He made a huge impact on my childhood, and I truly enjoyed this book.

"Many Ways to Say I Love You," by Fred Rogers was a beautiful little book filled with encouragements from a man who spent his life talking to children through his daily show on PBS, "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood." This book is the many thoughts he has for their parents. Mr. Rogers speaks of the parent's history growing up that those childhood difficulties and insecurities may also be a part of their parenting experience. The old issues appear again with new chances to deal with them to be more whole for your child's wholeness. Just as a child grows from the day it enters the world, the parent too grows in what it means to be a parent each new day with that child. He isn't cramming down new rules and requirements to be a good parent, but just as he did for children for so many years, Fred is speaking to the heart of the parent with love and empathy, encouraging them not to be perfect, but to give themselves grace, not to know all the answers, but to be a learner from your child, to listen to them, to be present. These things every parent can do. Mr. Rogers talks about the need to be yourself with your child, bring them in to your own life and your interests. You don't need to make up a persona of yourself that you want them to be, but being yourself lets them too, be themselves. This little book of parenting axioms and encouragements is a treasure for both the new parent and the old. It is a perfect gift for a baby shower or for a friend who is having a tough time in their parenting role. It would make for a good coffee table centerpiece too, that you revisit regularly when you are pulling your hair out as a parent. From the days growing up watching his beautiful show, to the biographies others have shared, to the recent film about his life, the more I learn about Mr. Rogers, the more enchanted I become. This volume speaks to a different side of who Fred was and what he valued most. It is a worthwhile addition to every parent's library. I received this eBook free of charge from Hachette Books via NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. I did not receive any fiscal compensation from either company for this review and the opinions expressed herein are entirely my own.
