4 Stars Out Of 5
A Welcome Guest

As parents in the early 70's, we limited television viewing, but Mister Fred Rogers was a welcome guest for our younger children. Thankfully, with DVDs and re-mastering, my young grandchildren also can sing along with "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood."
In this book, readers are allowed a rare glimpse into the life of Fred Rogers. And guess what? His persona as a gentle, caring person who loved children was authentic on and off the screen.
The author, however, goes deeper and shows us the man's faith in GOD. Quoting Mr. Rogers, "I'm so convinced that the space between the television set and the viewer is holy ground...and what we put on the television can, by The Holy Spirit, be translated into what this person needs to hear and see, and without that translation, it's all dross as far as I'm concerned."
