Join the History Center for a discussion with Gregg Behr and Ryan Rydzewski, authors of the new book “When You Wonder, You’re Learning: Mister Rogers’ Enduring Lessons for Raising Creative, Curious, Caring Kids.”
Playful and practical, “When You Wonder, You’re Learning” introduces a new generation of families to the lessons of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” By exploring the science behind the iconic television program, the book teaches parents and educators the many ways they might follow in Rogers’ footsteps, sharing his “tools for learning” with digital-age kids. With insights from thinkers, scientists, and teachers—many of whom worked with Rogers himself—the book is an essential exploration into how kids and their parents can excel at what Rogers taught best: being human.
Behr and Rydzewski will share stories behind their inspiration for writing the book, insights into their research, as well as personal memories of how Fred Rogers’ teachings have impacted their lives.
The book talk will be followed by a short Q&A session and book signing. Please register in advance.
