Bedtime for Baby: Sesame Street: 5 Little Rubber Duckies

Disclosure: Many thanks to MMPublicity for the opportunity to review this book.
Did you see that the United States Postal Service issued a stamp in honor of Mr. Rogers?  I grew up watching his show on PBS and a host of other PBS shows including the classic, Sesame Street.

Funny isn't it that the show we and even some of our parents loved as kids is still on the air.  Those muppets we've loved for decades are still educating and entertaining preschoolers and that says a lot.

I'm not ashamed to admit I can still sing along with some of my favorite Sesame Street songs.  Who remembers Ernie singing "Rubby Ducky" or Cookie Monster's ode to cookies?  

I was thrilled to receive Sesame Street: 5 Little Rubber Duckies By Matt Mitter and Illustrated by: Tom Brannon.  The book is perfect for preschoolers ages: 3 - 5 and helps reemphasize basic counting skills.  
Join Ernie and his friends for a counting adventure in this fun, hands-on board book! 

Join Ernie and his friends on Sesame Street as they try to find five little rubber duckies. With touch and trace elements perfect for little hands and plastic duckies to push and count along, this book is the perfect story time activity for early learners. 


The board book is only 12 pages and it's interactive so it's perfect for sharing with groups.  We had fun sharing it and letting kids come up to move the duckies along as we read.
The book is available at stores nationwide including Walmart, Target, Amazon and more.

Who are some of your, I mean your kid's,  favorite Sesame Street characters?

I didn't hear about Mr Rogers stamp, now that is cool. I gew up with him and Sesame street, it was like the only channel (PBS) we had back in those days! So cool that younger kids today can still enjoy sesame street.
I loved Sesame Street when I was little and for my kids. This looks like an adorable board book!
Unknown said…
I still sing these songs myself and have no problem admiting it. I loved Mr. Rodges, Seasme Street, the Electric Company, and Captian Kangaroo for that matter.
The claissics are always and forever the best!
This book looks like a perfect one year old birthday gift! I cannot believe that Sesame Street is still so popular!
I've always been a huge Sesame Street fan! My girls all love Elmo and Cookie Monster!

I think it's great that Mr. Rogers will be remembered with a stamp honoring him. I remember my (now grown) kids watching him and Sesame Street. Cookie Monster and Big Bird are my favorites.

My niece and I love watching Cookie Monster. haha! But I like Elmo the most.
Terri Steffes said…
We are Bert and Ernie fans! However, the Cookie Monster lives inside me and that's fine by me! I was a huge Mr. Rogers' fan from day 1. Fun post!

There is nothing quite like Sesame Street and this book sounds like such a lovely bedtime read for little ones.

I can look on Sesame Street and it is a fun show. Is entertaining and educational all the same time. These books are perfect for my nephew and niece who are now at that age.

I raised my kids on Sesame Street and they loved it until they went to school. I am a fan of all the characters but Elmo is a favorite of mine and was for my kids.
Unknown said…
What a fun book! Both my daughters were never really into Sesame Street but my youngest is now three and always liked Elmo best. I grew up with Sesame Street and love that they are still creating excellent educational programs.

This is just darling! I'm so excited to get to buy baby books again for brother's new baby. Burt and Ernie were always my favorites.
Jeanine said…
So cute! I know I was big into Sesame Street when I was a kid but my kids I don’t know have really seen much of it! This needs to change! Who isn’t a fan of Elmo though?
This is so cute. My kids loved Sesame Street when they were babies. Their fave characters are Abby Cadabby and Cookie Monster.
Terri Beavers said…
Abby's favorite characters are Big Bird and Cookie Monster. She could watch them all day if I'd let her. I grew up watching Mr. Rogers so I'll have to check out the stamps.

I love short hardback books that my three year old can enjoy. Sesame Street is just so educational, you can never go wrong with it. I enjoyed reading this article.

We didn't have TV growing up so I don't have favorite show. However when i became a parent, I learned to love Bert and Ernie with my kids.
Carol Cassara said…
I don't have children but Elmo has always been a favorite! I totally miss that show and I'm glad that kids enjoy it until this day! This book sounds great.
Pam said…
Both of my kids loved Sesame Street. I need to get this book so I can introduce my granddaughter to it.
Bonnie G said…
I love all of them. That book is really cute, my youngest would love it.

One of my husband's favorite books from his childhood is the Grover one about the monster at the end of the book. He still reads it to our kids.

Come Out & Play BUT Let's Practice Social Distancing

Come Out & Play  BUT Remember   To   Practice Social Distancing COVID-19, Coronavirus, Da Rona, whatever you're calling it has definitely changed all of our lives.  Families are spending more and more time together.  My husband teases me saying I've spent more time in the backyard since March than I have in the entire 15 years we've lived in our home.  Sad thing is... he's right. We planted a garden.  It was kinda by chance.  I bought these seeds and this starter compost.  Put them near the kitchen and after about a week or so, I started noticing gnats in my kitchen.  I figured it was some of the fresh fruit gone bad.  Tossed the fruit. Wiped everything down.  Gnats were gone.  A few days later... the gnats returned.  FINALLY figured out it that I had this dirt near the kitchen and remembered "Oh, you were going to start gardening."   Seeds planted.  Watered.  Now we wait.  It'll be a few weeks but I am so looking forward to cutting fresh spinach and
