This book is a picture book and is for the age group of N. It did not win any awards. This book is filled with colorful pictures and different shapes so that a child can identify with it.

No official reading numbers for this book, but the sentences are very simple and the text is large. Here are some sample sentences.

Big Bird sweeps the floor.

But what kids are going to love is Abby and Big Bird, Oscar and Grover and The Count!

It's fun to see the Sesame Street characters, but this one isn't quite as funny as some of the other ones.
