Sesame Street Live Can't Stop SingingMy oldest is three and I have been wanting to take him to his first live show for a few months. He is a pretty big fan of Sesame Street so I think this would be the perfect first show for him!  Just reading about it, I know we are going to have a blast.

Sesame Street Live “Can’t Stop Singing” is coming to the Peabody Opera House in St. Louis, MO from Thursday, January 24 to Sunday, January 27, 2013.

About the Show

When Elmo gets his furry fingers on Abby Cadabby’s magic wand, there’s something in the air – and Sesame Street becomes a nonstop, all-singing, all-dancing musical montage! Grover and Baby Bear sing their highs and lows, Cookie Monster sings fast and slow, Bert and Ernie converse in song and Murray makes mouth music for all to sing along! Learn why it feels good to sing a song, but why it feels good to stop, too! What will Elmo learn about the power of musical magic? Join the conga line of fun to find out!

New Play Zone Experience

Come and Play BEFORE the Show! VEE Corporation introduces Play Zone at Sesame Street Live – a fun new way for children to experience their favorite street!

Families won’t want to miss a single picture-perfect moment. Play Zone opens one hour before the show – best of all, Play Zone is FREE with your Sesame Street Live ticket!

I See Me Personalized Children's Books LogoThere is nothing more enjoyable than reading a good book to my kids. They love all kinds of books with animals, trains, adventures and fun. To make a it more intriguing and special, personalization can make a book stand out above the rest. Personalized books will never be the same since I discovered products from the award-winning I See Me!.

Our mission is to increase self esteem in children through personalized books that celebrate the uniqueness of each child.

I See Me Personalized Books

I received their newest book, ABC What I Can Be, for Ethan, my three year old son. This educational story highlights different careers he can be from A to Z. The first thing I noticed after receiving the book is the quality. It is very well made with a hard cover and heavy-duty pages, perfect for any preschooler.

What makes I See Me! books so unique, is extra steps they take to ensure the entire book is personalized. Unlike most personalized books, I See Me! adds personalization to the illustrations. Every page has Ethan’s name on it to correspond with the career. Not only can this make a child feel extra special, it also teaches them name recognition. The story is written in rhythm and flows smoothly from A to Z. The creativity can hold a child’s attention through each page. It truly is a fun book.

I know Ethan will love his new book and it will be in our collection forever. When his brother sees it, I am sure I will have to order one for him.

OTHER I SEE ME! GIFTS

There are many books to choice from, including holiday themes. Some great titles to pick from:

  • My Very Merry Christmas
  • Who Loves Me
  • The Super Incredible Big Sister
  • A Very Happy Birthday
  • My Very Own Fairy Tale

They also have personalized gifts such as coloring books, placemats, puzzles and gift sets. When you order two or more placemats or coloring books (great stocking stuffers), there is also a discount. I See Me! has compiled a great list of their hot products for their 2012 Holiday Gift Guide. Place your order my December 1oth to receive your order by Christmas with normal shipping. After that, you can still order with expedited delivery.
