Children's LiteratureElmo explains to very young kids that there are different kids of love. You can love your parents and members of your extended family. You can love your pets and special thing that you like to eat or do. You can even love a special day. Elmo demonstrates by introducing his friends such as Dorothy who loves her fish family and Cookie Monster who loves cookies. Elmos loves his birthday and those of others because he can tell them how much he cares about them, but most of all Elmo tells kids that he loves them. The familiar characters from Sesame Street will be quickly recognized and the message imparted absorbed by receptive toddlers. Part of the fun is to lift up the drawing that look like kids created them to have the message further reinforced with a picture and additional text. 2004, Random House, Ages 1 to 3.
