    Sesame Street, one of television's most significant shows, continues to educate children after 30-plus years on air. The success of the program is due, in large part, to a focus on research and curriculum development. The curriculum has evolved over the history of the show from being primarily cognitive to including many affective elements. This book shows the development of Sesame Street's curriculum and the development of other media. It is a must read book for those interested in childhood development, children's television, and fans of the show. After reading this book, one appreciates the fact that the success of the show is no accident.
