Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Who do we think of when we hear that phrase? And the tune rings in our brain? Mr. Rogers is the TV personality who teaches us about friendship, kindness, and everything that makes a good neighbor.

He wrote a special book that celebrates all he accomplished. Read Mr. Rogers’ Making Friends and teach a song from his TV show using Mister Rogers’ Songbook.

Choose at least one of these kindness projects.
