A classic Sesame Street Little Golden Book about cooperation and friendship returns--just in time for the 75th-anniversary celebration of Little Golden Books! One of the first two Sesame Street Little Golden Books ever published--in 1971, along with The Monster at the End of this Book--returns just in time for the 75th-anniversary celebration of Little Golden Books, with the classic Sesame themes of working together, cooperation, problem solving, and friendship. Girls and boys ages 2 to 5 will see how the Sesame Street Muppets solve problems by sharing tasks, from pushing a heavy wagon to drinking a milkshake that's too big for one. Sesame Street's original fans will welcome the return of this vintage classic with nostalgia and delight, and new fans will be charmed--and fascinated--by the retro look of their favorite Sesame Street characters: Big Bird, Grover, Bert, Ernie, Cookie Monster, Betty Lou, Little Bird, Herry, Sherlock Hemlock, and Roosevelt Franklin. Sesame Street first harnessed the power of media to educate children more than four decades ago, changing children's television forever. Populated with furry creatures and a diverse cast, it was the first show of its kind and provided a blueprint for educational media for generations. There are more than 90 million Sesame Street "graduates" in the United States alone, and fans old and young can find their favorite fuzzy friends on PBS, HBO, Sesame's award-winning website and chart-topping YouTube channels, as well as in books, toys, apps, healthy foods, and other products that benefit preschoolers and their families. Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, aims to help kids grow smarter, stronger, and kinder through its many unique domestic and international initiatives. These projects cover a wide array of topics, which address specific needs, such as girls' education, financial empowerment, and autism. In 2019, Sesame Street will celebrate its 50th year of distributing quality educational content to families around the world. Sesame Street is the most trusted name in early learning.
