When you tune in to Sesame Street you expect to find simple toddler and preschool lessons.
All of that is true of course, but Sesame Street has so much more to offer.
Kids will still learn their letters and numbers, but they will also be offered life lessons in a way that is easy for them to understand.
Sesame Street was a favorite of mine when I was little and now my kids love it.
There is something special about snuggling up to watch familiar characters sing and share stories.
After 40 years of making learning fun, Sesame Street has joined another household name. Starting January 2016, you will find new Sesame Street episodes on HBO. I’m excited to join in the effort to spread the word.
What is a friend? How do you make friends? What do you do when you hurt a friend’s feelings?
These short videos manage to answer all of these questions in a very fun way.

Emotions are a huge topic for kids. They are feeling all these big feelings but don’t have the experience to know what to do with them.
Watching stories unfold in a healthy way helps kids connect with the way they feel. Not only does it put a name to the emotions, making it easier to explain how they feel, it also lets them know they are not the only ones to feel that way.
- Anger Management
- Sad Balloon & Happy Balloon
- Frustrated Ray

We all want our kids to get excited about healthy food. Sesame Street makes food just as fun as everything else.
