Mister Rogers' Neighborhood - Season 28

PBS (ended 2001)




Episode Guide

  • A Visit with Author and Artist Eric Carle
    For some children, being a generous giver and a gracious receiver are natural. But other children may need more time and more help from us – not because they are selfish, but because they have trouble letting go. When we show children we care about their feelings and that we enjoy giving and receiving, we help them understand how much we receive when we give and how much we give when we receive.moreless
