it was amazing

I thoroughly enjoyed reading through this behind-the-scenes look at the life of Sesame Street. Densely packed with information about every facet of the program from its founding (including lots of academic research to direct it--I love this as an educator), characters, puppeteers and puppeteering techniques, and bios of past and present human stars, this was a treat to dig into every time I picked it up to continue my journey through the years. Everyone will be reminded of old familiar songs and letter or number "advertisements" from their childhood--friends and family who peeked over my shoulder exclaimed, "Oh! I remember that!" It was a joyful revisiting of my childhood (I was two when Sesame Street began airing) and the people--and puppets--I met along the way. May it run another 40 years!
