By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on March 8, 2001
Format: Hardcover
If you are like me, you'll be humming the theme song of Sesame Street to yourself as you read this book. The book provides a remarkable set of images about finding Sesame Street that will be conjured up every time you hear the theme song. The story provides great support for the fun of books, and trusting to your purpose despite apparent hurdles to overcome. As such, it will be an important contribution to your library of beginning reader books. The book's fine illustrations help reinforce the words in the story, to make learning to read easier, and to make the story more fun to read.
The book opens with Elmo surrounded by books.
"Elmo likes books."
"Fat books. Funny books. Bat books. Bunny books. Bear-in-the-chair books. Kite-in-the-air books."
With this beginning, the story quickly takes Elmo on a wonderful kite adventure. I liked this approach very much because it shows how books can be the launching pad for many interesting thoughts and experiences. Further, you can use your imagination to build on what's in the books. The bulk of the story then involves what happens when Elmo's kite pulls him off the ground and into the air. How will he get back to Sesame Street?
By suggesting that this could be a pretend adventure, it also takes the potential fright out of the story for many children. If your child is easily upset by danger, you may want to wait until she or he can be more objective before introducing this story.
In the course of the adventure, many strange and unexpected things occur. But Elmo is always flexible and imaginative. As a result, the results of challenges turn out well. You can use this story as a metaphor for how life tends to be in talking with your child.

This adorable learning book opens with Elmo surrounded by many books and we read one statement on the first page.

"Elmo likes books."

He then goes on to tell us what kind of books he likes,

"Fat books. Funny books. Bat books. Bunny books. Bear-in-the-chair books. Kite-in-the-air books."

This is great, as it shows children books are wonderful and since Elmo likes books, just maybe they should like them as well. Good beginning.

Elmo decides to go fly a kite, but when the kite takes him up in the air, the adventure begins. How will he get back to Sesame Street? Elmo looks up and down and what does he see? Finally Elmo lands in the back of the truck and meets many wonderful characters, and shows his imagination in the events that follow on his journey back to Sesame Street.

Great illustrations and an adventerous read.One your children will enjoy over and over again.

Don't let your little one give up his love for Sesame Street.

Instead of making such lovable characters come to life, your kids can now read to you.

Can You Tel Me how to Get to Sesame Street? is a book featuring Elmo. Elmo is reading books when all of a sudden, he finds himself in a field flying a kite. He get carried up and up and up until he no longer recognizes his surrounding. He asks animals for help but all they can respond is with their animal noises. Finally Elmo finds help and ends up back in his comfortable chair.

A cute journey with an even better ending. Elmo never left his home. He needed up getting carried away with his books and reading.

Through Elmo's journey, the kids will see the power of books. The ability words have to take you from one location to the next. This book will inspire the young reader to read more.

We really enjoyed this book. Elmo starts out reading books and ends up going on a kite flying adventure. The story is full of excitement, with lots of rhyming and repetition (which my kids love). The artwork is delightful.... I especially loved that the kite gets more and more tattered as his adventures carry on.
