The Importance of Being Ernie (and Bert): A Best Friends’ Guide to Life
While children are still working out the mechanics of being friends with someone, they’re already introduced to the idea by Sesame Street‘s resident duo of wisecracking roommates, Bert and Ernie. As they bicker, get on each other’s nerves, and resolve their differences peacefully, they teach kids about patience, humor, personal space, respect, and so much more that’s all an important part of being a friend.
And that education continues with The Importance of Being Ernie (and Bert) (or The Importance of Being Bert (and Ernie), if you pull the tab on the cover to shift the perspective a bit). A hilarious guide to being friends, roommates, and often polar opposites that nonetheless complete each other, this book is funny and sweet, not to mention absolutely loaded with little details that longtime fans of Sesame Street will recognize instantly.
Designed to feel not only warm and friendly but also as if the book truly was assembled by Bert and Ernie, it alternates between Ernie’s freewheeling, haphazard style and Bert’s exacting, fastidious touch. This is reinforced by the numerous full-color pictures of the pair amidst all their shenanigans. (There’s even a quiz to see if you’re a Bert or an Ernie!)
Great fun with a heartfelt message attached. This book continues the Sesame Street tradition in adorable fashion.
