Publisher's summary

The New York Times Best Seller 

For the first time ever, 75 beloved songs from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and The Children's Corner are collected in this charming treasury, sure to be cherished by generations of children as well as the millions of adults who grew up with Mister Rogers. The audiobook includes the iconic song "Won't You Be My Neighbor", music and lyrics by Fred Rogers.

It’s you I like.
It’s not the things you wear,
It’s not the way you do your hair -
But it’s you I like.

From funny to sweet, silly to sincere, the lyrics of Mister Rogers explore such universal topics as feelings, new siblings, everyday life, imagination, and more. Through these songs - as well as endearing puppets and honest conversations - Mister Rogers instilled in his young viewers the values of kindness, self-awareness, and self-esteem. But most of all, he taught children that they are loved, just as they are. 

Perfect for bedtime, sing-along, or quiet time alone, this beautiful book of meaningful poetry is for every child - including the child inside of every one of us.
