Going to the Potty, a title in Rogers's First Experiences series, handles a sensitive subject with the same quiet candor and respect for young audiences that are the hallmark of his Mister Rogers' Neighborhood TV show. Large color photos present children using the toilet, and the straightforward text emphasizes the benefits to the child of mastering this developmental step. Unlike other books on this subject, which can be overly cutesy and condescending, this one offers practical information and gentle encouragement. Children may be disappointed that Mr. Rogers himself appears only on the book's jacket, but parents will find this a valuable resource. (27st

Producer, magician, writer, puppeteer, minister, husband, father, Fred Rogers started out in children's television thirty years ago. The direction he trailblazed was the "creation of television programming that spoke, with respect, to the concerns of early childhood, not as adults see it but as children feel it."
He has received virtually every major award in the television industry for work in his field, and dozens of others from special-interest groups.
Fred Rogers lives in Pennsylvania.
