My daughter was home sick from school, so naturally we’ve been watching tons of television. I always loved Sesame street as a child, but my kids were starting to outgrow it. I hadn’t watched the show in a while and I realise that I’ve really been missing out.

Here is another fantastic video, featuring Janelle Monae! She is teaching kids about not giving up. The power of Yet is a great song with a fantastic message.

I know I’m starting to sound like a broken record, but what can I say? In my humble opinion Sesame Street is still hands down one of the greatest shows for kids.

Another cute video about skin, this time it is featuring Lupita Nyong’o.  I love the way Elmo exclaims that her skin is a “beautiful brown colour”. 

Thanks to Sesame street, lots of kids can grow up feeling good about the skin they’re in! 

This song made me so happy. Hearing a song that celebrates different brown skin-tones put a smile on my face. This song will really help children understand and appreciate the beauty of their skin. 

I can’t wait to listen to this with my kids!

Thank you Sesame street.

Who knew Cookie Monster was so wise?

The Alligator King

I have always loved this song. When I hear it I can’ help but smile. My brother and sister and I saw it on Sesame street back in the 80’s. I love Turk Murphy’s voice and the lyrics are fun!

(Side note: He also sings Penny Candy Man)

The animation is adorable, and it teaches kids a valuable lesson. Sometimes the best gifts don’t have to be expensive. Something as simple as a helping hand can be the best gift of all.

Toothpaste designed for kids under the age of 2. This should probably read safe “when” swallowed as opposed to “if”.
