Mister Rogers is one of the most beloved television personalities. But before Fred Rogers was the man who brought us Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, he was just little Freddie Rogers. As a child, he was often sick and had trouble making friends, but his mother encouraged him to befriend the helpers in his community, and his grandfather inspired his confidence to explore the world around him. When he grew up, Fred realized he could convey the message of compassion, equality, and kindness to children through television.

You Are My Friend is a gentle homage to Fred Rogers and shows how his simple message still resonates with us today: “There’s no person in the whole world like you, and I like you just the way you are.”
