For over thirty years, American children grew up watching Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood on PBS. Mr. Rogers offered a calm and stable presence, tackling life's weightiest issues in a simple, direct way. Won't You Be My Neighbor reflects on Fred Rogers’ legacy of kindness, and the profound and lasting effect his innovative approach to television had on millions of children.
