He is talking a little slower. He is being so honest. “Yes, I’m a little nervous. But drawing helps me when I’m nervous.” Who does he remind me of? Of course, he’s like Mr. Rogers!
I just watched the movie, It’s A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood with Tom Hanks. It tells the story of Mr. Rogers from the perpective of an Esquire Magazine writer. Apparently, Mr. Rogers was the magazine’s cover story in November, 1998. The movie give you a glimpse again of this gentle man who taught a children’s auidence with a TV show.
Watching author/illustrator, Mo Willem, yesterday during his Lunch Doodle online video, that same care for a children’s audience came through. Maybe it is what he learned while writing scripts for Seseme Street years ago. The respect he has for kids is so strong and can be seen in how he honestly talks to his audience during the Lunch Doodle time.
I’m looking forward to 1pm today!
I encourage you to take a look HERE.
Take 30 minutes and enjoy the 2020 Fred Roger’s – Mo Willem.
