I am a fan of all Quirk Books picture books. Over the last few years, I’ve been able to relive my childhood with some amazing picture books. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is no exception.
The poetry has a good message and is overall very positive. Younger children will definitely be interested in listening to the rhymes.
About the book
It’s you I like.
It’s not the things you wear,
It’s not the way you do your hair—
But it’s you I like.
From funny to sweet, silly to sincere, the lyrics of Mister Rogers explore such universal topics as feelings, new siblings, everyday life, imagination, and more. Through these songs—as well as endearing puppets and honest conversations—Mister Rogers instilled in his young viewers the values of kindness, self-awareness, and self-esteem. But most of all, he taught children that they are loved, just as they are. Perfect for bedtime, sing-along, or quiet time alone, this beautiful book of meaningful poetry is for every child—including the child inside of every one of us.
