This is one of a series of products developed in cooperation with Fred M. Rogers, creator of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," the award-winning public television program for children. Both the program and the materials based on it encourage children to be themselves, to imagine, to create, to cope with feelings and new ideas -- and through all these things, to learn and to grow.
For quiet times, when space and attention span may both be limited, a book of pencil-and-paper activities provides a wide choice of things to do. The special feature of this book is that it gives options for children to do each activity in the way that they would like to do them. Most of the activities are for children between the ages of 4 and 6.Of all of the Mister Rogers activity books that have been published throughout the years, this is probably the one I would recommend the most for those of you with children. This book is a little more difficult to find than some of the more recent books and may cost you a bit more (I paid about eight bucks on eBay -- a little more than the original 39 cent cover price), but if you're looking for some Mister Rogers related activities to do with your kids, this book is packed with a wide variety of fun (yet simple) things to do.
Hard to believe this book is almost 40 years old! For all of the fun details about the Pencil Play Book, visit the Neighborhood Archive.
