Fred Rogers showed young children the world in simple, yet direct ways. We love when Jeff Erlanger visited Mister Rogers and talked about his electric wheelchair. Join them in singing, “It’s You I Like” at https://youtu.be/UNUficgWE3U.
Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was a great place to visit for kids of all ages and abilities. It’s not too late to visit. Whether you’re looking for a calming moment or a delightful distraction, here are links to places on the Mister Rogers’ website that you may want to turn to these days:
