MR ROGERS’ NEIGHBOR

“The world would be better off if people tried to be better.  And people would become better if they stopped trying to be better off.”  Peter Maurin

Book Time!   I’m very excited about the new Mr. Rogers’ movie that’s now in the theaters.  I love Mr. Rogers.  And so I watched another movie on Amazon Prime about Mr. Rogers, Mr Rogers and Me, and found out about one of his favorite authors.  In fact, Mr Rogers liked this man’s books so much that he’d order them by the dozen and give them as gifts.

The author, Bo Lozoff, would get these orders from a Fred Rogers and wonder if it was THE Fred Rogers.  It was.  I was curious about these books.  I ordered a few.

Right now I’m reading Deep & Simple on my Kindle.  I ordered a paperback of We’re All Doing Time because it became evident as I was reading Deep & Simple that these are books to mark up and refer to again and again.

Thank you, Mr Rogers.
