The cardigan, the sneakers, the voice so soothing it should be its own brand of stress therapy. We speak, of course, about Mister Rogers, and we speak about him this week with New York Times bestselling author Gavin Edwards, whose new book is a prescriptive biography of all things Fred Rogers.

Prescriptive because, in Kindness and Wonder: Why Mister Rogers Matters Now More Than Ever, Gavin not only builds on the legend of Mister Rogers, he shares the many ways the beloved children’s television star walked the walk of the life lessons he shared with generations of viewers, and offers suggestions for how we can, too.
