    Fun read

    I bought this for my grandson. He loves Elmo so anything with this character in the book, makes him happy. The book was OK, but nothing I could get very excited about. The end is rather weird as it does not seem to flow from the story.

    Elmo's Wonderful Trip Back to Sesame Street

    If you are like me, you'll be humming the theme song of Sesame Street to yourself as you read this book. The book provides a remarkable set of images about finding Sesame Street that will be conjured up every time you hear the theme song. The story provides great support for the fun of books, and trusting to your purpose despite apparent hurdles to overcome. As such, it will be an important contribution to your library of beginning reader books. The book's fine illustrations help reinforce the words in the story, to make learning to read easier, and to make the story more fun to read. The book opens with Elmo surrounded by books. 'Elmo likes books.' 'Fat books. Funny books. Bat books. Bunny books. Bear-in-the-chair books. Kite-in-the-air books.' With this beginning, the story quickly takes Elmo on a wonderful kite adventure. I liked this approach very much because it shows how books can be the launching pad for many interesting thoughts and experiences. Further, you can use your imagination to build on what's in the books. The bulk of the story then involves what happens when Elmo's kite pulls him off the ground and into the air. How will he get back to Sesame Street? By suggesting that this could be a pretend adventure, it also takes the potential fright out of the story for many children. If your child is easily upset by danger, you may want to wait until she or he can be more objective before introducing this story. In the course of the adventure, many strange and unexpected things occur. But Elmo is always flexible and imaginative. As a result, the results of challenges turn out well. You can use this story as a metaphor for how life tends to be in talking with your child. We all have to realize that the unexpected is usually just around the corner. After you have read the book several times, encourage your child to read the repeated words like 'books' aloud when they appear. This will help with decoding words and letters. Like many excellent beginning readers, this book features lots of that valuable repetition. There are a number of situations where only one letter is different (as in 'there' and 'where'). When your child is ready, help him or her to differentiate between them and to then read the two aloud to you when they appear in the story. Build reading skill through repetition within the context of an interesting and entertaining story like this one!
