Our Experience
We love Sesame Street, it's one of our absolute favorite shows in our home. As a mother I have come to love these lovable little monster's that teach my little one's the importance of manner's and educational lessons through this adorable platform. I watched Sesame Street as a child, and now my children watch Sesame Street, simply the amount of time that this show has been around speaks VOLUME'S for the content!

That being said, we were excited to learn about the all new Shalome Sesame Series of DVDS! Teaching our little one's about other cultures is a priority for us, and what better way to do that than through their lovable furry friends from the cast of Sesame Street?! We had the opportunity to check out Shalome Sesame: Mitzvah on the Street. What an amazing DVD! Not only was it entertaining, it taught the importance of community and coming together in difficult times to help those around us who may be in need. The kid's loved watching Grover attend the Bar Mitzvah in Jerusalem, and learning about another culture and area of the World. We absolutely love the Shalome Sesame series, and plan to check out additional titles from the series soon!
