*Starred Review* Fred Rogers is fondly remembered for "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" but music played a role in his life long before his ubiquitous TV show. One of his earliest memories was the lift that his grandfather's violin playing gave him when he was stuck inside while suffering from asthma as a little boy, and he soon took to the piano to more fully express his emotions, coming to rely on music as a kind of therapy. Songs became an integral part of his show, too, from the opening moments to the incredible musicians who dropped by. There were songs about joy and love, sadness and anger, and they gave his young audience a powerful outlet for complicated emotions. This beautiful book fills in a few biographical details, but it really shines a spotlight on the powerful role Rogers' music played in his life and that of so many others. The cheerful illustrations, rendered in soft watercolor, gouache, and colored pencil (among other tools), are somehow both lifelike and dreamy, with swirls of musical notes and illuminated lyrics woven around the more straightforwardly drawn scenes and individuals. Young fans will be tickled by the familiar lyrics and swirling colors, and their grownups will delight in gentle nostalgia. An affectionate tribute to both the remarkable man and his musical legacy.

Donna Cangelosi is a child psychologist who, much like Mister Rogers, spends her days working with children to help them understand and process their feelings. She was born in New Jersey and lives there today. In her free time, Donna reads biographies, visits museums, and does yoga. This is her debut picture book.
Amanda Calatzis spent countless days watching Mister Rogers after school when she was growing up. Today, she brings that same warm, comforting feeling into her own art. She previously wrote and illustrated Khalida and the Most Beautiful Song (Page Street Kids). She lives in New York City with her husband, two children, and three dogs, where she spends her days creating art in her studio, playing guitar, and reading as many books as she can.
