Elmo makes a super special super card for someone he truly loves, only to have it blown away by a gust of wind.
Elmo has always been one of preschoolers' favorite Sesame Street characters because he shares many of their feelings, and has no problem expressing them. In this emotion-packed story, children learn all about love, which Elmo admits "is a very strong emotion." With signature Sesame Street heart and humor, and creative performances by R.E.M., Trisha Yearwood, and John Legend, this is a DVD with which kids and parents alike will fall madly in love!
Even though very young babies won't understand the meaning of "emotion," they'll still feel the love. The whole story has a warm and cuddly feeling about it, and Elmo is as irresistible as always. Two-year-olds will be so excited to discover who Elmo is giving his card to that they just may want to make one of their own.
Preschoolers will be fascinated to watch Elmo's reaction when Rosita kisses him and hugs him tight--"Love is a very strong emotion, and Rosita is a very strong monster!" he says--and they'll completely understand his frustration when the card he worked so hard to make blows away. Three- to five-year-olds will enjoy practicing their newfound signing skills, and will laugh when Cookie Monster writes a love letter to--what else?--his cookie, and ends up eating both the cookie and the letter!
Most kids in this age group have outgrown Sesame Street, but those watching with younger siblings will probably get a kick out of R.E.M. changing the lyrics of "Shiny Happy People" to "Furry Happy Monsters." They'll also appreciate Rosita's comment, "If there's one thing that says 'love,' it's heard-shaped construction paper," and Grover's reaction to all the kissing and hugging: "I think I have to go see my chiropractor now!"
