This book includes illustrations from eighteen talented artists, and the results are incredible. This is a beautiful way to celebrate fifty years of Sesame Street.

A beautiful book featuring illustrations from different authors. It was a blast from the past to read, and it was equally fun seeing old illustrators I love and new illustrators I discovered from this book.

I love that this is an illustrative collaboration; it's great to see so many different styles in one book about a show that's all about inclusion and being a good neighbor.

This picture book celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Sesame Street and it's catchy theme song. You can hear the tune in your head right? "Sunny day, sweepin' the clouds away..." It's one of those tunes most kids will know for a lifetime. Combined with the lyrics from the theme song are a collection of illustrations by an incredible group of artists. The range and diversity of the pages matches that of the Sesame Street world with all it's color and beauty. This is a book that generations ...more

This makes my heart so happy; thank you for this slice from my childhood and all the different illustrators. Yes, I sang along as I looked through (though I remembered slightly different lyrics towards the end with the whole "it's a magic carpet ride part...); okay, now I will have to Google and see.

Update: well, I was wrong, but I was right, but I was wrong. What is written in the book was not the original lyrics. And I filled in the lyrics wrong when I was a little kid. In the original Raposo

Was dying to get my hands on this because Christian Robinson, Emily Winifieled Martin, Kenard Pak and Sean Qualls were all in the same place!
Pros: illustrators are obv great and the concept is cute and nostalgic butttt there's one fail. It's pretty difficult to determine which illustrators did what (illustrator's names aren't listed in corner of works and there's no table of contents--you can find illustrator bios in the back.
So awesome how they did this with a variety of illustrators, one for each spread. A couple people I'd never heard of, a couple that were easy to tell who they were, and some surprises! I wish it came with a CD with the song, though I guess for just one short song that would be not much for a whole CD. Maybe there's an audio version?

I liked seeing how a variety of artists chose to illustrate each spread of the Sesame Street theme song. Some were familiar and others new to me. Each illustrator has a brief bio at the back of the book.

This was so fun! I especially liked the last page (by the illustrator of "After the Fall) and the cover under the dust jacket. Highly recommended!
