I remember watching Mr. Rogers all the time as a young girl. I liked him, but didn’t fully appreciate his particular brand of self-esteem building until my son began watching.
Yes, he seems a bit old-fashioned in this day and age, but what is so wrong with that? His message is timeless, the delivery perfect. I’ll admit that the puppets are a bit too slow in this era of lightning-quick cartoons, though. Even I found them to be a tad tedious at times.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t love him still.
How well do you know Mr. Rogers?
And lordy, how much do I love that picture up there??
