The new documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor? gives a behind-the-scenes look at the beloved Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and the Mister Rogers himself. Common Sense gives this film 5 stars and their “Seal” designation (entertainment that provides an exception experience including the opportunity to have great conversations with the family). It’s a wonderful chance to revisit the inception of children’s television, and look again at the radical genius of a man who truly understood children’s feelings and was able to communicate effectively with them about big ideas: feelings, fears, and more. You’ll need Kleenex!
