My son loves Elmo, and I can appreciate Elmo’s positive influence on him as well. We’ve used Sesame Street books, toys, DVDs and musical CDs to learn about manners, numbers, shapes, letters, the weather, dance, music, other cultures and even potty training.
Seeing Elmo live is a magical experience for little fans. I took my son to see “Elmo’s Green Thumb, a Sesame Street Live Show, last March to celebrate his 2nd birthday, and we had a wonderful time. So I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to offer one lucky Mamanista reader the chance to win a Family Four Pack of Tickets to Sesame Street Live “Elmo’s Green Thumb” at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Kids and parents will enjoy the show, which teaches kids about nature in a non-preachy way. Elmo has raised his sunflower, Sunny, from a seed, but the floral friend has outgrown his flower pot. Elmo and friends find Big Bird’s garden the ideal place for Sunny to flourish and grow but they are too excited to wait. Rather than let Sunny follow nature’s course, Abby Cadabby, Sesame Street’s fairy-in-training, casts a spell to make him grow. The spell does just the opposite and, instead of growing, Elmo and all of his friends shrink! While Abby searches for just the right words to reverse the spell, Elmo, Zoe, Telly and friends explore Big Bird’s garden from a smaller perspective and learn some big lessons about patience, overcoming their fears and appreciating the role that each creature plays in our ecosystem – from dancing ladybugs and beautiful butterflies to grouchy beetles that scavenge the garden floor.
