I'm going to cry! I totally forgot about this book. Used to be so nervous for Ernie. I need to find this...

A book with good advice for children. I originally only gave this book two stars because I am not a child, it doesn't have any nostalgic value for me since I didn't have it as a kid, and because for the most part it wasn't as funny as the other one I read. However, considering how dearly loved it is by my dearest love and the fun part about how Ernie bought Bert a 'Pigeon Land' board game, I have decided to boost my rating to four stars. I hope that everyone who loved this book will forgive me f ...more

I think this is an excellent book for all young children to read, especially children who enjoy Sesame Street. The book shows that getting seperated from a parent or guardian in a mall is totally possible, but everything will be okay in the end. This also teaches that it is always okay to ask for help. Ernie asked a sales associate to help him find Maria and she was able to find her for them. In the end, everything was okay and kids should know that they can always ask for help when in need.

This book traumatized me as a child, because I thought getting lost was a fate worse than death. Once you were lost, that's it. You'll never find your home again.

I got over it eventually, and maybe it was with Ernie's help. I'm glad he found he way back to Maria and wasn't lost at the department store forever. If he was, then Bert wouldn't have received that badass Pigeon Land board game for his birthday. Man, I always wanted to play Pigeon Land so bad.
This book was great! Ernie was very cute. He's just like any other little kid who wanders off on their own in a shopping center. I used to wander off in the supermarket a lot too when I was small and then I'd have to shout all over for my mom. I'd really love to read it again, but my parents gave it away years ago.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a very good book that helps explain how easy it is for a child to get separated from his parent and lost in a department store as well as what to do when it happens. Presented in a non-scary way, with everybody's friend, Ernie.
