Elmo and Friends: Taking Care of Each Other

February 5, 2024

You may have heard that Elmo got quite a response this week when he asked his followers on X how they were doing! NPR reported that his viral wellness check got 180 million views on the social media platform alone by Wednesday afternoon. His feed shows such a wide variety of feedback, it’s clear that the question brought up a lot of emotions from his friends there.

We love Elmo for checking in on his friends all across the world. In tribute to this sweet gesture of caretaking, we thought we’d share three heartwarming books about fun and friendship from Elmo and Sesame Street.

See below for our book recommendations, and check this link for some tips on ELMOtional Wellbeing.

Here he brings all of his Sesame Street friends together to help little ones learn to count. With Big Bird, Cookie Monster, and so many other favorites pitching in, learning is an adventure. And the included CarryAlong® Projector makes them all shine!
