Won't You Be My Neighbor?

A little kindness makes a world of difference

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is a touching, triumphant tribute to Fred Rogers, a remarkable man who reminded generations of young children that they mattered and that they were loved. There are no secret behind-the-scenes shockers here, no ‘gotcha’ moments of unexpected behaviour. Rogers was just as upright, compassionate, and loving off camera as he was on, although his family did have to share him with the world.

Poster for the profile of Mister Rogers, Won't You Be My Neighbor?The various interviewees reveal that Rogers, a devout Christian, was disciplined (he swam every single morning and weighed 143 lbs. his entire adult life) and single-minded in his pursuit of quality programming for young children. He was a big believer that even very young children can handle and understand a lot. There’s no such thing as a perfect human being, but there’s no denying Rogers came pretty close: He was an extraordinary man who always put children first.
