YA-An entertaining and educational look at this remarkable program. When Sesame Street first aired on November 10, 1969, not even the most optimistic visionaries of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting could have foreseen its worldwide success. Young adults who have known Big Bird, Bert, and Ernie since birth will fondly remember their preschool days. They will also appreciate the clever dialogue and humor that kept their parents watching with them. Borgenicht does an outstanding job of conveying his enthusiasm for all aspects of the show. The book's title is a clever suggestion of a fun-loving expos? and Sesame Street Unpaved does, indeed, expose all of the activities, characters, and creatures that have made Sesame Street a cultural icon. The book layout is high energy, just like the program. The variety of fonts, photos, graphics, and the bright colors are exciting. The trivia questions, the behind-the-scenes secrets, and Muppet profiles are great fun while the technical tidbits are informative. A sentimental stroll for all of those fans who have spent time together watching Sesame Street.Nancy Karst, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
