Now, a parent with a child of my own, in search of non-disturbing entertainment that won't insult the intelligence of a little kid, I've come back to Mister Rogers' neighborhood, and it feels like home. Sadly, amazingly, inexplicably, there are only three DVDs of Mister Rogers material to be found(!) and they are all from his later years, when his hair was grey and he tended to drop things a lot... But the sweetness, the sincerity, the earnest desire to make the world a better place still comes through loud and clear. Mister Rogers is a comforting presence, and his Land of Make Believe is still as magical as ever: we were hooked. It's a pity you can't see all the old stuff, too -- I imagine in a few years it will all be available online as downloads, but I'm sad that we will have to miss it, when the time is so right. Oh, well.
Anyway, these DVD editions are nice, although they do have their quirks. "A Day At The Circus" is one of the best because it has two stand-alone episodes, one about visiting the circus and another about making music. The footage of live animals and chats with various circus performers is nice, and as ever Mr.Read more ›
Mister Rogers' Neighborhood is probably the best show ever made for children, because he understands the educational and emotional needs of young children. It may not be obvious, but quite a bit of thought was put into the design, format and content of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.
Mister Rogers teaches young children to value themselves and respect others. He speaks to them directly on his show and encourages them to use their creativity. He brings them on field trips to interesting places, like a farm, bakery, barber shop, and balloon factory.
He is a good person - an educator - to invite into your home and share time with your child. If your young child does not watch Mister Rogers, she should. His goal is not catchy entertainment, but to help very young children with their early development. His message is simple.
"I like you just the way you are.
"There's only one person in the whole world just like you."
His television show is not as popular as it used to be (once hugely popular) and not as popular as other commercial, shallow television programs. It is not targeted at adults. Instead Mister Rogers is educational entertainment for young children ages two, three, four, and five; the little ones learning to count one-two-three-four-five, tie their shoes, and just beginning to understand themselves and their worlds. That's why Mister Rogers's Neighborhood is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics - your child's doctor.
Fred Rogers is a genius of early childhood education.Read more ›
Filled to the brim with positive reinforcement and educational material taught at a slow pace so children can absorb it, Mister Rogers, remains after 30 years on PBS one of the best possible educational shows on television. Mister Rogers makes every child feel special and loved while helping them learn the moral lessons that are missing in so much current children's programming.
I would give this DVD more stars if they would let me... like 75 or so. :)
Mister Rogers Neighborhood is an educational springwell and a delight to watch. If you want the best for your kids, this is a MUST-HAVE DVD!
