Sesame Street – always a winner

We like to let Brenna sit with us to watch Sesame Street clips on Youtube. She of course loves Elmo, like all kids do these days. I’m happy to report she’s a big fan of Bert & Ernie and Grover as well. Her current favorite is probably Abby Cadabby. She’s the newest addition to Sesame Street, and comes from “Fairyland” I believe. Anyway, she has a wand and tries to solve things with magic a lot and generally just ends up with pumpkins, and has to get help to accomplish her goals like everyone else. I honestly think she’s a very clever way to talk to kids about diversity and friendship and hard work while avoiding the traps of being heavy handed or condescending. Sesame Street is rather brilliant like that.

Anyway, she also loves words! One of Brenna’s favorite Abby bits is the Word Song. Here is a quick video of her watching the last minute of the song. I’m biased, but WOW is she adorable at the end.

    That was so darn cute. She is so smart and sooo expressive. Did not know this character. I guess I need to start S.St. again.
