I believe I have stated before how obsessed my youngest daughter, Ms. A, is with Sesame Street. I am thrilled to tell you that her obsession has only intensified over time *eye roll* In fact, she is so obsessed that whenever she sees a television screen (at church, at other people’s houses, at a store), she points and yells at the top of her lungs, “ELMOOOOOOO!” It’s pretty stinking cute, although I am semi-resentful about the fact that is so crazy about Elmo because his voice drives me batty!
In all fairness, I do really love what she can learn from Sesame Street. Counting, the alphabet, valuable life lessons about things like sharing, being helpful, etc…the show is a wealth of learning opportunities. Typical of the show, the Sesame Street Alphabet Songs DVD is jam packed with over 2 hours of letters, letter sounds, vocabulary lessons, and music, and my kid FLIPPED OUT when she watched it! Bonus points: I needed to cook dinner so I turned this DVD on for Ms. A and the little boy that I watch two days a week, and it was silent (the good silent, not the scary kind) in my living room, allowing me to cook dinner in peace! I’d highly recommend this DVD for any child as obsessed with Elmo as mine!
