Big Bird Across America

Mon, Aug 9 11:00 A.M. NHPBS      

Big Bird wants to visit Cousin Bird in California but he lives to too far for Big Bird to walk. Nina offers to take Big Bird on a road trip to visit Cousin Bird. Nina explains that they can even stop in different parts of the country to meet new friends and learn more about where they live. When Nina and Big Bird are packed and ready to go, Elmo mentions that he's going to miss Big Bird. Nina then comes up with an idea of calling Elmo while they're traveling so that he can still see Big Bird and meet new friends too.

About Sesame Street:

SESAME STREET has garnered more than 100 awards, including 101 Emmys, two Peabodys, four Parents' Choice Awards and an Action for Children's Television Special Achievement Award.

The series delivers academic and social education that prepares kids for grade school.

Since its premiere, the show's base curriculum has been set by academic research on preschoolers.

Encore episodes focus on music and art and how these tools can be used to develop the whole child - the cognitive, social, emotional and physical attributes.

In addition, "Elmo's World," which looks at the world through the eyes of a three-year-old, continues as a featured segment.

Themes include birthdays, pets, teeth, families, games and more.
