Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The inspiring profile brought to life in the major motion picture starring Tom Hanks in theaters Thanksgiving, plus a collection of warm advice and encouragement from America's favorite neighbor

Tom Junod's Esquire profile of Fred Rogers, "Can You Say... Hero?," has been hailed as a classic of magazine writing. Now, his moving story of meeting and observing the beloved host of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood is the inspiration for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, directed by Marielle Heller and written by Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster.

Here, Junod's unforgettable piece appears for the first time in book form alongside an inspiring collection of advice and encouragement from Mister Rogers himself. Covering topics like relationships, childhood, communication, parenthood, and more, Rogers's signature sayings and wise thoughts are included here. Pairing the definitive portrait of a national icon with his own instructions for living your best, kindest life, this book is a timeless treasure for Mister Rogers fans.
