It's a beautiful spring day on Sesame Street: the sun is shining in a cloudless sky, flowers are blooming everywhere, and leaves are filling in on the trees. But Elmo has just unearthed his sled and he asks fairy-in-training Abby Cadabby to magically bring back winter so he can play. This funny story, based on an episode from the Sesame Street TV show, helps toddlers learn about nature's clues to the four seasons and the order in which the seasons pass. And Abby's spells, chanted with help from Big Bird, Baby Bear, Telly, and Grover, emphasize rhyming words, a key concept in language development for toddlers.
