Believe it or not, Sesame Street is now 45 years old. Wow, did they age well. We thought we’d commemorate by recounting some of the great things we’ve learned from our Sesame Street family over the years.
Most of us here credit the Count for teaching us how to count to 10, maybe even 20. Thanks, Count von Count!
Thanks, Grover and Kermit, for showing us how straight lines make letters and so much more. Hugely helpful to know.
Sesame Street taught us so much more than just basic academics. They gave us lessons on life—like loving ourselves and each other for who we are.
4. To Be Brave…and Realistic
Remember when you used to feel scared? Nothing better than the reassuring words of Super Grover.
5. Be Honest
Probably the most valuable lesson for a child. A lesson in truth telling isn't anything to sneeze at.
6. To Dance!
Probably our favorite lesson of all. Just dance.
