Guess who’s celebrating their 40th birthday?

Sesame Street!
If your anything like me, you grew up with Sesame Street. My parents were always working and my sisters and I, when we weren’t coming up with wild and elaborate stories for our barbies, we were watching Sesame Street.

The characters like Grover and Snuffleupagus (Elmo hadn’t been “born” until after we stopped watching) were always so amazing to me, especially the way that they interacted with their human counterparts.

I loved the little cartoons in between. The music was always so catchy. In fact, I still get some of the songs stuck in my head! “One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten, Eleven, Twelve”

My sisters and I loved reading the book “The Monster at the End of the Book“, which is about Grover and how terrified he is of the monster at the end of the book.
