With the release of A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, you just might notice more than a red cardigan trend. Fred Rogers, aka Mister Rogers, was not only the man behind the iconic children’s show, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (which aired from 1968-2001) he was also a proponent of kindness, imagination and helping children understand the importance of expressing feelings. Across the country, and even the world, there’s a renewed interest (and need) to stay true to Mister Rogers message.
“Try your best to make goodness attractive. That’s one of the toughest assignments you’ll ever be given.”—Fred Rogers
