Sesame Street ABC's Book

Happy Friday everyone! I had to share this little purchase I made recently on a perfect condition 1989 Sesame Street book. For 25 cents, I couldn't resist, even though my pile of books is growing a little faster than I'd like...

"On My Way with Sesame Street -  My ABC's" is the first volume of a series that focussed on different subjects. I remember watching Sesame Street as a kid in the eighties and learning all about the Letter B from the great tune that accompanied it. The show was so clever back then, mimicking The Beatles with puppets in such a memorable fashion. Brilliant. Educational. Hilarious.

I like this page especially because it shows so many of the great Sesame Street characters. Isn't it funny that the detective is named Sherlock Hemlock?

Check out some of my Sesame Street posts regarding a couple of finds I have made in the past!


  1. Love it! I would have picked it up too :o) Scarlett x

  2. As a child I would park myself in front of the TV for Sesame Street. My favorite was Mr. Snuffleupagus!

    Cool find!

  3. Fun Stuff! I do love that Beatles moment on Sesame Street- it's one of the few specific ones I remember. The Count and Snuffy were my favorites- ONE, ah, ah, aaaah!!!

  4. I love the old Sesame Street books. I picked up an old letter "A" book the other day and it is so neat. Each page is unique and has different illustration and story styles. There is even a cookie recipe in it!! They just don't make books like that anymore..

  5. I love finding vintage sesame street stuff, reminds me of being a kid, lovely book!

  6. My favourite Sesame Street find still has to be my cute little Cookie Monster castanet. Love it!
