spends a great day on Sesame Street

 For my little sister, from


I love you!

     It was a busy day on Sesame Street.  Everyone was preparing for the big art show.

     Kelsey Marie Peterson, age 4, from Richmond, Virginia, was coming to judge the show.  Kelsey was bringing Kayla, Brittany and Liz to help her.  The best artist would get a bright blue ribbon.

     “Hurry everyone!” Big Bird called.  “Kelsey will be here any minute.”

     Finally, Kelsey arrived with Kayla, Brittany, and Liz.  Big Bird was so happy   to see Kelsey that he gave her a warm hug and welcomed everyone to Sesame Street.

     After pointing out all the wonderful sights on Sesame Street, Big Bird explained that the judging was about to begin.  “First stop is Oscar’s trash can,” he said.

     Oscar had made a most unusual sculpture out of some things he’d found in the trash.  Kelsey was very impressed.  But Oscar thought he had a little more work to do, so he searched through his can for the finishing touch.  As trash came flying out of the can, Kelsey spotted the perfect piece—a flattened fluget horn.

     “Wow, that’s trashy!” said Oscar.  “That should do it!  Thanks, Kelsey.”

     Next, they visited Cookie Monster.  He had made a giant picture of a cookie.  Kelsey could practically taste the scrumptious-looking treat.  “That is the best cookie I’ve ever seen,” declared Kelsey.

     “Mmmm, Kelsey right.  Cookie!” Cookie Monster said as he took a large   bite out of his picture.

     Kelsey giggled.  “Now it’s perfect,”     she said.

     Ernie and Bert waved Kayla, Brittany, and Liz over to see their baseball mural.  They had painted a grass-green baseball diamond covered with bats and gloves.  Bert paced back and forth nervously.  Ernie tossed a ball to Kelsey.  “Nice catch, Kelsey,” he said.

     Next, Kelsey walked over to Zoe, who was sadly holding up an empty frame.  “I didn’t finish my painting,” Zoe sighed.

     “Look at your smock,” Kelsey said with a big smile.  “It’s as beautiful as any painting I’ve ever seen.”

     Zoe quickly took off her smock and hung it inside the frame.  Then she blew Kelsey a big kiss!  “Thanks, Kelsey!”

     Big Bird guided the judges over to the Count’s display of numbers.  The Count had carved several giant numbers out of wood and painted them in different patterns—delightful dots, cheeky checks, and stupendous stripes.

     “One, two, three, four, five, six.  Six super numbers.”  Kelsey counted out loud and the Count applauded.  Kelsey smiled and followed Big Bird down Sesame Street.

     “Hey, Elmo,” called Big Bird.  “Are you ready for our judges?”

     Elmo pulled aside a curtain to reveal a large picture made up of brightly colored triangles.  “Wow,” said Kelsey, “I’ve never seen so many triangles in one place before!”

     “Elmo made it especially for Telly,” Elmo explained.  “Telly loves triangles.”

     “Well, Kelsey,” Big Bird said.  “It’s time for you to pick the winner.”

     Kelsey groaned and plopped down on a bench facing Big Bird.  “I’m in trouble, Big Bird.  All the paintings are so great!  How will I ever pick a winner?”

     Big Bird shook his head sadly.  “I wish    I could help.  Too bad there’s only one blue ribbon.”  Kelsey jumped up.  “That’s it, Big Bird.  You’re a genius!”  “I am?” Big Bird smiled happily.

     Kelsey ran inside Mr. Hooper’s store.  She came back out holding a handful of blue ribbons.  “Everybody’s a winner on Sesame Street!” Kelsey shouted.

     “Hurray!” Big Bird said.  “Let’s have a party to celebrate.”

     "I’d love to stay,” Kelsey said, “but I have to get back to Richmond, Virginia, along with Kayla, Brittany and Liz.

     “Well don’t forget to come back and judge our dance contest,” said Ernie.

     “I won’t,” called Kelsey, as she waved good-bye to all her friends on Sesame Street.
