Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood: Mister Rogers and Making Mistakes

MISTER ROGERS AND MAKING MISTAKES

Mister Rogers taught generations of children how to accept and respect others, how to be lifelong learners, and how to feel valued and encouraged. Never afraid to tackle tough subjects, he spoke openly about the topics children silently wondered and worried about, but adults often struggled to talk about.

In Mister Rogers and Making Mistakes, you can watch memorable episodes where Mister Rogers helps children understand that everyone makes mistakes from time to time. World-famous pianist Andre Watts performs for Mister Rogers, and together they talk about practicing and learning from mistakes!
