mister rogers inspires me. he inspires me by how he gave me the permission to be myself. permission to grow into the wild flower i am, without needing to compare myself to any other flower in the field, all while infusing a calm sense of kindness into our world.
i am sad to look at children’s programming these days and not see a consistent, fun grown up friend who leads them through foolish songs, puppet shows, and life lessons throughout the years of their development.
this is what tepper’s tots brings. a weekly playdate with your friendly fool and his bag of colorful surprises. if you feel like your tots could use this type of consistent figure in their development, please give me a fine howdy-do!
