In the Times through which we are living, this is an amazing experience! Before the concepts of trauma-informed care, adverse childhood experiences and child-centered anything, this man was pioneering a concept of childhood edutainment that was so pure, so sparkling, so true. The Esquire article is a winner. The interspersed Rogers reading Rogers and Rogers read by a sensitive professional reading was a treat. As a pediatrician and mom, I am enthusiastic and appreciative. As a former child, I am tearful, grateful, and prayerful.
