Overview





Illustrated in full color. The colorful characters from Sesame Street teach

young children about racial harmony. Muppets, monsters, and humans compare

noses, hair, and skin and realize how different we all are. But as they look

further, they also discover how much we are alike.




Illustrations and simple rhyming text show that while the body parts of various human and Muppet characters may look different, they have similar uses.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Jim Henson's Sesame Street Muppets cavort cheerfully with people of all sizes, shapes and ethnicities in this rather humdrum effort to show the ways in which all people are the same, despite obvious physical differences. On alternate spreads, drawings imitating photos zero in on variations on noses, hair, mouths, skin, eyes and bodies, all ``different'' from one another. A turn of the page reveals all of the owners of these body parts interacting, alongside several lines of sing-song verse explaining how our noses, hair, etc., are ``the same.'' Some of the rhymes are silly or forced; part of the explanation of skin reads: ``Muscles and bones are wrapped inside it. / We all have blood and skin to hide it!'' Even the affable Sesame Street gang can't enliven this mundane treatment of a significant subject. Ages 4-8. (Nov.)

    Good Lesson

    I've been reading this with my two year old daughter for the last year and it's one of her favorites! The pages are crammed full of pictures for learning opportunities. She's all about Sesame Street characters and this book is perfect. I'd like to think this book has helped her begin learning about diversity and the need to appreciate everyone's likenesses and differences.
