Samantha says: A timeless classic, this song speaks to the mission of Fred Rogers, who once said, “As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has—or ever will have—something inside that is unique to all time. It’s our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression.”
Fred Rogers believed that anyone who found success in anything did so because someone believed in them at one point or another. He said, “We just don’t get to be competent human beings without a lot of different investments from others.” As Child Development professionals we need to realize the impact of our investments. It’s so important for us to instill in young children that they are important, highly valued, and loved just as they are.
