Publisher's Description

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 charmingly illustrated treasury, sure to be cherished by generations of children as well as the millions of adults who grew up with Mister 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.

Author Bio

Fred Rogers was many things—a minister, a musician, a puppeteer, and a friend to generations of children. He was everyone’s very good neighbor. For over 30 years he created and hosted the groundbreaking educational television series Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom and was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame, among other distinguished honors.

Luke Flowers has illustrated over 42 children’s books, including his author/illustrator debut series Moby Shinobi, a Scholastic Easy Reader that has sold 800,000+ copies across three books since 2016. Luke’s artwork explores a wide range of styles and techniques and has been featured in over 36 gallery shows in Los Angeles, New York, and Colorado. He also enjoys puppeteering, playing banjo, and going on adventures with his wife and three kids in Colorado Springs, Colorado. You can see more of his work at lukeflowerscreative.com.
