Sunny day, sweepin’ the clouds away…
Ahhh, don’t you just love Sesame Street?
It’s the most famous street in the world where muppets, monsters, grouches and a big yellow bird educate and delight our children.
Sesame Street has been spreading its magic for 44 years, making it one of the most-watched and longest-running children’s TV shows in history. In fact, Sesame Street will be celebrating its 45th anniversary in Australia next year. There’s something pretty special about seeing your children watch a show that you grew up watching as well.
This beloved TV show not only teaches our children about letters and numbers, but it also teaches them about everything life will throw at them, from how to share to different ways parents create their families. That’s what makes it the world’s most influential children’s TV show.
