    Thanks for this review letting me know about Muppet books.
    My son and daughter are grown up now but they learned so much by watching the Muppets on Sesame Street. Now my 2 grandkids enjoy them. Recently, my grown daughter gave her daughter her singing Kermit toy. It was so cute listening to them sing along with Kermit to his Rainbow Connection song from an early Muppet movie. :-)
