If you can't be a woods/Be a tree.
If you can't be a highway/Then just be a trail.
If you can't be the sun/Be a star.
—From "Be the Best of Whatever You Are"
For more than thirty years, Fred Rogers welcomed young viewers to Mister Rogers' Neighborhood with the familiar words of the show's theme song, "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" Now for the first time ever, the lyrics to that beloved tune and seventy-four other poems from the show have been collected into a single volume. These gentle rhymes tackle family, friendship, love, anger, sadness, loneliness, silliness, and more…all with the sweet honesty and unfailing encouragement Mister Rogers was famous for.
