Dream: with Sesame Street

Sourcebooks. Nov. 2019. 32p. Tr $12.99. ISBN 9781492695004.
PreS-Gr 1–Familiar and beloved characters from Sesame Street, including Big Bird, Elmo, and Cookie Monster, offer the very young encouragement and advice through simple rhyming text. Nelson’s colorful imagery and Hill’s positive messages throughout create a platform in which parents can have an age-appropriate conversation with children about their dreams and aspirations themselves and drive home the message that sometimes we have to encounter difficulties in reaching our goals. Positive self-talk is sprinkled throughout the story (“You’re amazing and smart in all that you do.”).
VERDICT A colorful, engaging picture book that beautifully illustrates self-worth, goal-setting, and what to do when one encounters difficulty along the way.
