Gregg Behr & Ryan Rydzewski

Children’s advocate Gregg Behr and award-winning reporter Ryan Rydzewski are the authors of When You Wonder, You’re Learning: Mister Rogers’ Enduring Lessons for Raising Creative, Curious, Caring Kids. By exploring the science behind his 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 — 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. 

By crafting new op-eds that explore and expand on the book’s ideas, Gregg and Ryan continue to spotlight the book in national publications, including TIME, The Hill, and others.
