Why I Love This Book: I just love the simple and fun way this book addresses the topic of how individuals are similar and different using familiar characters from Sesame Street. I especially love the overall message of the story, that is that we are all wonderful and can all belong even with our similarities and differences. What an important message for young students to learn as they broaden their circle of peer friends and acquaintances by going to school.
