Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

This first book of words and their meanings is one of the best-loved Sesame Street titles published by Random House. It includes more than 1,300 entries of verbs, nouns, and adjectives. The full-color illustrations are chockablock with trademark Sesame Street humor, making this book as much fun to leaf through as to look up a word. Plus each book comes with a special gift, a CD sampler of classic Sesame Street songs, including ?Elmo?s Rap Alphabet,? ?Off to School,? and ?Cookie?s Rhyming Song?!

I still own my original 1980 copy of this book and I'm in my mid 20's - it's one of my most cherished possessions. This was one of my first real books and my parents claim it was the secret of my educational success. Beyond being a dictionary, it teaches counting, reasoning and ethics. I would recommend this book to anyone who either loves Sesame Street or is looking for a really good book for their child to learn from.

This book is not just for toddlers. It is the only dictionary I have seen that puts standard sight words into meaning. Particulary children with learning disabilities have a very difficult time understand the concept of sight words. With a very playful, visual and active descriptive of the sight words, it brings life to the meaning of the words, and it eases in the retention of these words when reading. This book is excellent for children with reading disabilities - up until the 3rd or 4th grade.

I bought this book for my 20-month old daughter because she loves Sesame Street. Elmo is her favorite. She calls this her "Elmo Book." I assumed that since Elmo is ON THE COVER, he would be in it, but my assumption was wrong! Upon closer inspection, I realized that even though I thought I was purchasing a 2004 book, it originally came out in 1980 (pre-Elmo), and apparently, they just slapped a new cover on it with Elmo and Zoe (who do not appear anywhere in the book!) I was going to return it since I was disappointed with it, but my daughter still likes to look at all of the pictures and all of the other Sesame Street characters (from when I was growing up). I felt bad because the first night I showed it to her, and she saw the cover and screamed, "ELMO!" Then I sat down with her and said, "Where's Elmo?" and we flipped through the whole book to realize her "Elmo Book" doesn't contain Elmo! Other than that major complaint, I still like the book and its illustrations even though I think the cover photograph was a very poor choice, and by writing this review, I hope to save other parents from disappointing other true Elmo lovers!

I've been reading this book to my 2 1/2 yrs old daughter as her bedtime story since she was 18th months old. Now, she requested me to read this book for her everynight without failed. I find that this is a very good book to make her interested in reading.

My 2.5 years old son falls in love with this book. He reads it every night. Every night, he will take out this book from the shelf and asks me to tell what the sesame street muppet did in the pages. Once I stop, he will say : "Turn the page, Mum, No stop. Please read me this book!" If you don't ask him to stop reading, he will continue to read this book till late night. This book is really a unusal dictionary that the family with little child should have one.

This book is the first thing I purchased for our baby, who will join us in March. I received a copy in 1980 and it was my very favorite book as a child. My mom still has my original edition, which has been reinforced many times over with duct tape. As a previous reviewer mentioned, I also think it was the secret to my academic and professional success. I was reading by age two and think this book definitely helped pique my fascination with learning. I was so thrilled to find it still in print and see that it hasn't changed in 30-plus years (a good thing, in my opinion).

Format: Hardcover
This book is wonderful for children from ages 2 and up. My 2 year old is not yet ready to learn definitions, but the book is filled with colorful, easy to see pictures, in which he can identify his beloved Sesame Street characters, as well as the activities that they portray. This is one of the few books that he doesn't want to put down. So many pages makes it something new each and every time we pick it up. I cannot tell you the extent of the knowledge he has gained from this book. Several of his daycare teachers have told me how amazing he is in what he knows and comprehends for a child his age. His knowledge and perception of things took off immediately following our Sesame Street Dictionary reading sessions. This is a book that will continue to give as he grows older and begins learning the concepts and definitions of these words, not to mention when he begins reading and writing!

This is one of the better books that has so much in it that I can read it every night (many times) and still see new things. I can read it with my 18 month old (she loves Elmo, Ernie and Cookie) and my 3 year old (who loves the information from the book). My 3 year old will actually 'read' it to his sister while I am doing other things. The pictures are great and it is classic Sesame Street. i will note that the images and text is similar to the encyclopedia set from the 80's (which I also recommend), but that's ok. I didn't have the complete set anyway.
