Book Review:

Sesame Street Parents Christmas: Christmas Holiday Projects for Parents & Children is a very inviting collection of craft, game and gift ideas for parents and children to do together. I was very impressed and happy to see that the patterns and illustrated instructions were all in color because that makes them more attractive and easy to follow since it is geared toward children as well as parents. This bright colorful book is divided into clear and straightforward sections; Holiday House, Merry Munchies, Reindeer Games, Party'n' Things, Presents to Make, Wrap it Up, Awesome Ornaments, Christmas Greetings and Grin and Wear It.

Some of the crafts are shown in real-life settings that let you know what they would look like displayed and others are modeled by or with children. Between each chapter there is a dividing page with one or more Sesame Street characters on the page next to the title page for the chapter. The patterns are included with the crafts instead of in a separate section, which is more helpful and convenient for the parents and the children. There is more than one variation for some of the crafts in this book (i.e. Star and Gumdrop Garlands, Dip-and- Drip Flowerpots and Star and Christmas Lights stitched cards). Not all of the crafts give an age rating but these projects are supposed to be for the family to do together so parents can use their discretion because they know what their children can or cannot do.

The best part of this book is that it has a fun, festive look to it with all the colors graphics and images of the Sesame Street characters. There are also little introductions to each craft most of which involve the Sesame Street characters saying how they made the craft and/or how it could be used. This is a charming touch to the book because it means every aspect of the book has been geared toward children and it is also just plain cute. Kids will identify with their favorite characters and want to make certain crafts based on the images of the crafts and/or the Sesame Street characters.
