Books for Neighbors: Legacy of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood

Mooresville Public Library Mooresville, NC

Did you watch Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood growing up? My unimaginative self loved when neighbors came to visit, when he fed his fish, or talked about his feelings, but didn’t like when the trolley went to make-believe. But, I love the legacy of his work, treating ourselves and each other with kindness. Check out these books to dig deeper:
