I'm not talking just about Sesame Street toys or games either. My son loved Sesame Street books, stories, music,videos - and even Sesame Street clothes! He was always intrigued with letters and words. Actually, he often seemed downright obsessed with letters. So I'm sure that Sesame Street's focus on letters was a big part of the appeal - although he sure did love the characters, Bert being one of his favorites.
Take some time on Saturday to think about Sesame Street and all it has done for many, many children!
