Mr. Rogers was a huge part of my childhood. This book is a great way to share his lessons with new generations.

Honestly I'm a kid who grew up watching Mr. Rogers so this book just brought back to a happy place.  I think it would be a great book for parents to share with their own children or libraries to share with their story time children,

This was such a great easy read. Although I wouldn't use this with my 5th graders, I would love to leave it in my library as a choice book. I have recommended this easy, simple read to all my 2nd grade teacher friends though! Beautiful illustrations tied in with Mr. Roger's iconic song.

I received an electronic copy from Quirk Books through NetGalley.
Delightfully illustrated board book to read as a family. Mr. Roger's theme song forms the text so families can read or sing together. The brightly colored illustrations pull readers in to his neighborhood and make them feel welcome.

How nostalgic! I grew up watching Mr. Rogers and this brought back a lot of childhood memories for me. Beautifully written in a way that rolls off the tongue, and fantastic artwork! Mr. Rogers was very ahead of his time, and one of the most wholesome shows. I'm so happy to see a book like this bringing him back to relevance for the younger generation. Loved it!

Thank you to NetGalley and Quirk Books for this free copy in exchange for an honest review.

I loved this book.  It brought back all the "feels".  It was nostalgic and brought back everything that I loved about Mr. Rodgers neighborhood.  The words will roll off your tongue like a sweet melody.  The pictures in the book were vibrant and showed a diversity among the characters.  This would make a wonderful book for any child.

If you have ever watched Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, you will love reading this book. You will love remembering the song from such a beloved television show.  I highly recommend reading this book!

It is pleasant but although I am familiar with Mr Rogers, I think it would probably more appeal to someone in the US with that history.  The artwork was fair, but I found it a bit creepy that many of the character's facial expressions didn't change!

This book is beautifully illustrated with bright colors that are sure to capture children's attention. It's very simple - just the lyrics to the beloved show Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. It would be great to share with babies ad toddlers - while singing along, of course!

Super cute book. I loved the Art and I am always happy to see Mister Rogers. This would be a good one to read aloud in a storytime.

If you have had the privilege of watching the introduction to Mister Roger's Neighbor, then reading this book will bring you right back there. Do not be alarmed if you start singing/humming parts of the words; it's only to be expected. The pictures are so vivid and welcoming and, as always, the message is strong. This is a great addition to libraries for the next generation. I suspect Fred Rogers would be proud.

Love the colors! Bright and attention grabbing. As a kid that grew up on Mr. Roger's, I couldn't help but sing some of it. My little one is a huge Daniel Tiger fan and he loved it too!

I grew up on Mr. Rogers, so I was an easy sell on the book based on the theme song, and this book is absolutely everything that I'd hoped it would be. I probably won't be buying it for my school library since its a board book, but I'll gladly buy a copy to read to my son at home. It features all the classic characters in the bright, warm illustrations, and it really hits the mark. This is the sort of book that fans of Mr. Rogers will get, but even if you are not acquainted with Mr. Rogers, this is still worth a look. Nicely done, through and through.

I was able to read this book electronically through Netgalley. This is a beautifully illustrated poem of the theme song from Mister a Roger’s Neighborhood. Such a simple book to share one of our favorite childhood songs.

Mr. Fred Rogers used this poem set to music, as the opening song on his PBS program.
As you share the book with a child you may want to sing along. 
Notice the characters and familiar settings with details that can spark conversation.
The illustrations are vibrant and display the values that come across from Mr. Roger's Neighborhood. [kindness, friendship, sharing, diversity, positive self-esteem]  I enjoyed seeing all the puppets as the trolley makes it's way though the town.

This book is the theme song of Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, no more, no less. The illustrations are gorgeous and have a diverse set of characters. Mr Rogers has signs promoting love for all. It opens up for a great discussion.

Beautiful illustration of the Mr. Rogers theme song in boardbook form. Luke Flowers illustrations are perfect for this format.
