Publisher's Summary

For more than 30 years, television's Mister Rogers taught children how to become confident, well-rounded adults. His simple yet profound philosophy is that each one of us is a special person full of unique talents and abilities, and that no two people are exactly alike.

You Are Special is an inspiring collection of Fred Rogers' self-esteem boosting wisdom. Rogers also shares many private stories about his own challenges growing up, including the important role his grandfather and a few influential teachers played in his life.

Fred Rogers' short, easy-to-remember maxims and observations helped people of all ages make sense of a complicated world. Now that he is gone, this collection will remind you why he meant so much to you as a child. You Are Special will make sure you keep benefiting from his hopeful outlook on life.

    Story
    "Short and Sweet"

    This book is really about development of children (and adults too really but they aren't mentioned) on how to nurture others and love them.

    This book is simple, sweet and informative. It's quick to listen to and isn't bogged down with someone who just wants to show you their knowledge. He seems to really care and has simple ways of teaching about life. There's a happy sad reality to it.

    "Short but Covers Alot"

    In total it's a short audio book, but it's filled with a complex wealth of excellently narrated dialogue by Mister Rogers himself.

    Story
    "The Wisdom, Quotes, and Piano of Mr. Rogers"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - it's an easy listen, full of inspiring quotes.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You Are Special?

    There are some great quotes in this book, but for me the most memorable aspect of the book is how Fred relays his experience of watching, listening, loving, and learning. So much of what you read in the parenting section today is based on formal research of children in "the lab".


    Have you listened to any of Fred Rogers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    If you've watched the television series, you'll recognize the material, the tone, and Mr. Rogers at the piano between chapters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Thinking about life as a parent, this book challenges you to think about what you're doing.

    "Such a healing book"

    I can't recommend this book enough. Me. Rodgers insights into children and what they need from parents are timeless. Do your entire family a favor and listen to this book.
