Did you watch the show? Do your kids? Street Gang" is a new book that chronicles the history of "Sesame Street". Show was unique when it went on air in 1969, using TV techniques for education. Much behind-the-scenes activities, but show has stayed true to goals. Thank you, Jim Henson, who was famous as creator of the Muppets when "Sesame Street" began, invented a world of (literally) colorful characters -- Oscar, Big Bird, the Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie -- and, with his puppeteering crew, gave them soul. http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/books/02/11/sesame.street/index.html

Oh, that seems like an interesting book. Yes, I would be interested in that. I'll have to see if it ever materializes at the local library. Gosh, I haven't been to the library in a long time. Guess I should dust off my card.

Yes I watched the show when and still on occasion when I have a young one at my house babysitting. I think it is a delightful show that everyone should experience. I am glad that it is still growing strong after all this time. It has taught me and many other kids how to count,spell and learn the alphabet. So yeah I would love to read about it. It would be pretty interesting to learn more about it.

It sounts very interesting. As I was given a series of Seseame Street books from when I was a kid & they have a picture of all the actors at the time. It's crazy how many of them they've been able to retain thru the years. Seaseme Street ROCKS!

I think it could be a good read. I would not go out of my way to buy it, but if I knew someone who had a copy I would probably borrow it to check it out. I used to watch Sesame Street all the time when I was a kid.
