My four-year-old — nearly two years after her love affair with Elmo first ended — has rediscovered Sesame Street. So every morning, we curl up so that she can watch her favorite characters (currently Big Bird and Abby Cadabby) while I get enjoy my daily dose of nostalgia.
Sesame Street’s long legacy of entertaining and educating kids in a way that respects their young age without ever talking down to them earned them a special recognition earlier this week: the Lifetime Achievement Emmy. Watch the cast accept their award with a montage of favorite moments and see Cookie monster devour the “delicious” award.
