What's the story?

This Sesame Street album has no particular theme, message or special flavor associated with a character, making it just a nice collection of songs. Several are sung by adults, some by Sesame Street characters, and others by miscellaneous monsters.

Is it any good?


Young listeners will learn to distinguish sounds, appreciate the wonders of counting, acknowledge that everyone makes mistakes, exercise their imaginations, and generally take pride in being themselves. The utterly lovely "Imagination," Kermit's amusing "Caribbean Amphibian," and the inspiring "Reach Your Hand Up High" help to define this collection as platinum. All of the songs are well-known gems for established Sesame Street fans and a good introduction for the few listeners not familiar with the TV series.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about some of the lessons in these songs. Parents need only take the time to draw some attention to the lyrics and their meanings.
