Playful and practical, the new book "When You Wonder, You're Learning" introduces a new generation of families to the lessons of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. We are excited to welcome Gregg Behr and Ryan Rydzewski to Business as Usual today to detail the inspiration for authoring this amazing book. By exploring the science behind the iconic television program, the book reveals what Fred Rogers called the “tools for learning”: skills and mindsets that scientists now consider essential. These tools—curiosity, creativity, collaboration and more—have been shown to boost everything from academic learning to children’s well-being, and they benefit kids of every background and age. They cost next to nothing to develop, and they hinge on the very things that make life worthwhile: self-acceptance; close, loving relationships; and a deep regard for one’s neighbor.
