This free series contains videos that deal with issues children may face such as a parent in the military being deployed, bullying, death, etc. They are meant to be watched with a parent present and help children who may be too young to know how to express their feelings. They are meant to help start a dialogue through discussing the experiences of characters they are familiar with who are facing situations similar to their own.

I am a huge fan of Sesame Street as a kid and now watching with my nephews/niece. I'm not sure if they will watch anything, but it is great seeing them enjoy the same characters as I when i was a kid. Of course, you can be assured that educational content is included. I also enjoy the parodies of pop culture and the occasional celebrity guest/singer.

Death has always been a touchy subject for a kids' show. Before I was born, Sesame Street first tackled the subject of death in 1983, when after Mr. Hooper's actor Will Lee passed away, the writers decided to tell the truth and kill off his character as well, resulting in the famous Emmy Award-winning Episode 1839, featuring a segment when Big Bird learns from the adults on the street that Mr. Hooper died and he "isn't coming back." Real emotion was used from the cast, even Caroll Spinney (the performer of Big Bird) had true emotion in his character. It proved so successful, they were able to do other episodes with difficult subjects, including marriage (when Maria and Luis got married in 1988), birth (when Maria gave birth to Gabi the following year) and adoption (twice, when Gordon and Maria adopted Miles, and Gina adopting a son years later.)

This is pretty much SesameWorkshop/CTW's second attempt at doing a presentation about death, and for me, it works equally as well. But instead of it being an existing human cast member, it was a Muppet that was written just for the segment: Elmo's late Uncle Jack. Elmo shows quite a bit of emotion, so does his father and cousin. It was a very beautiful production, and perfectly complements Episode 1839.

Now I know what you're thinking. Usually I don't tune into the newer Sesame Street stuff (I'm still a huge Muppet fan, and I still like the Sesame Street stuff made before 1993, when I stopped watching the show as a kid), but when I saw this was available for free, I just had to check it out. I'm typically not too keen on the modern Elmo (I prefer Elmo of the late 1980s and early 1990s, the version I grew up with) but here he handles the situation really well.

My children and my self enjoyed the video cover stories about different families. I would tell anyone with children 3 years plus to watch the video.

Watched it with my 18-month old niece. It kept her engaged throughout the program. She just loves Elmo so much.
