Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

Fred Rogers Wisdom

As I've been delving into the early childhood world more and more in the past year, I have heard innumerable references to Fred Rogers.  I grew up in the early years of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, and have fond memories of watching his show as a preschooler (except the puppets, ugh, I hated that whiny cat) .  His calm demeanor and friendly nature made me feel like I had a real rapport with him.

The Fred Rogers Company has a Professional Development Newsletter that touches on some important things to remember about the needs of young children.  It includes quotes and video clips from Fred Rogers, along with astute observations and reminders by the newsletter creator, Hedda Sharapan.  You can sign up to have it delivered to your mailbox, or you can also search the archives by topic for subjects you are interested in.
