Love this little movie
17 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say, I grew up on this movie and it is the best! I am 29 years old now, and I am thrilled that you can now buy it on DVD. I can't wait to continue the Christmas tradition from when I was a little girl watching it with my sister and brother and parents, and one day soon watch it with my children!!! If anyone is considering this movie for your children, I highly recommend it! As anyone can see, Sesame Street is the best, it's sweet and always educational. There are little lessons in every story line in this movie, not to mention the music is great. Thank you Sesame Street for providing children (and parents) with so much joy!
