Promotion Packet February 1989

Overview

These materials tell about the special guests and Neighborhood of Make-Believe storyline from the Neighborhood week on “Fun and Games.” Fred Rogers’ message seems to be that joining a team and learning a game can be difficult, but persistence and a desire to play can lead to much joy in a sport.

These promotional materials were sent to PBS stations to advertise the theme week. Family Communications used these promotional packets to describe why and how Fred broached particular topics that are of importance to children.
