It’s you I like.
It’s not the things you wear,
It’s not the way you do your hair—
But it’s you I like.
 
From funny to sweet, silly to sincere, the lyrics of Mister Rogers explore such universal topics as feelings, new siblings, everyday life imagination, and more. Through these songs --- as well as endearing puppets and honest conversations --- Mister Rogers instilled in his young viewers the values of kindness, self-awareness, and self-esteem. But most of all, he taught children that they are loved, just as they are. Perfect for bedtime, sing-along, or quiet time alone, this beautiful book of meaningful poetry is for every child --- including the child inside of every one of us.
