ABOUT THIS BOOK

Superstar illustrators celebrate the iconic Sesame Street theme song with stunning original art in this one-of-a-kind picture book!

To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Sesame Street, beloved picture-book artists have each created an artwork interpreting a different line from "Sunny Day," the iconic Sesame Street theme song. The range of their pieces demonstrates that Sesame Street can truly be found anywhere. The award-winning and bestselling roster of illustrators includes Christian Robinson, Tom Lichtenheld, Vanessa Brantley-Newton, Leo Espinosa, and Dan Santat, among others. The result is a stunning tribute to Sesame Street and to the generations of children who have loved the show. Anyone who opens this beautiful book will be inspired to imagine their own perfect sunny day.

For half a century, Sesame Street has helped kids grow smarter, stronger, and kinder through its messages about inclusiveness, kindness, and, of course, literacy and numeracy.

“A heartwarming tribute to a familiar, friendly tune…. It's impossible not to hum along and be transported.” —Kirkus Reviews

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

Joe Raposo (1937–1989) began playing piano as a child, and later studied piano with the great Nadia Boulanger in Paris. A serendipitous meeting with Jim Henson in the 1960s led Raposo to join the team behind the creation of Sesame Street, for which he served as musical director for several years. He wrote more than two thousand songs for Sesame Street, earning three Emmys for his work on the show.
