Elmo loves you!

We just caught this airing on PBS last night quite accidently and were enthralled! I watched it with my 7.5 and 12 year old and it was very well done and informative. I grew up in the 70s and fondly remember Sesame Street. My girls both watched Elmo's World on Sesame Street and we had many videos of just his show. Kevin Clash is heartwarming and a pleasure to watch

Perfect film for kids who have left the "Sesame" years

If you have kids -- say 7 and up -- that are beyond the age of "Sesame Street," this movie a perfect bridge in that it recalls childhood memories, and show how adults create environments that nurture children. Part of the pain of growing up is leaving behind things you loved. This movie says you don't have to, that you can take deeper joy in sharing those things with the next generation. I'm speaking as an adult interpreting this film. Kids will just find it engrossing. Every kid who watches this will want to be a puppeteer, at least for a day. And Kevin Clash -- an African-American from a working class background -- comes off as the sweetest human being on the planet. He is undoubtedly a very talented artist who works incredibly hard, but this movie almost makes it seem like his phenomenal success stems mostly from the fact he never lost his sense of joy and wonder. Not a bad message for anybody at any age. I highly recommend this.
