The Good Neighbor
The Life and Work of Fred RogersLarge Print - 2018
The Good Neighbor, the first full-length biography of Fred Rogers, tells the story of this utterly unique and enduring American icon. Drawing on original interviews, oral histories, and archival documents, Maxwell King traces Rogers's personal, professional, and artistic life through decades of work, including a surprising decision to walk away from the show to make television for adults, only to return to the neighborhood with increasingly sophisticated episodes, written in collaboration with experts on childhood development. An engaging story, rich in detail, The Good N eighbor is the definitive portrait of a beloved figure, cherished by multiple generations.

Overall a fascinating account of a childhood icon for many of us. It's read by LeVar Burton (of course!).
Reading this book is a balm for the heart. If you're looking for a read about a good person trying his best to do good for his community, this is a very satisfying story. And the audio version read by LeVar Burton is an extra delight!
