Beloved children's television host Fred Rogers is the 31st hero in the New York Times bestselling picture book biography series for ages 5 to 9.
As a shy, young boy, Fred Rogers found comfort in telling stories through puppets. When television grew in popularity, he knew he wanted to create a show that encouraged kindness and goodness. His show Mister Rogers' Neighborhood shaped modern television and cemented his legacy.
