Welcome to a very special installment of Brightly Storytime, our video series for kids. This time we’re welcoming a wonderful friend to storytime. Elmo! Elmo teams up with Ms. Linda to tackle some terrifically funny tongue twisters. Then Ms. Linda puts her skills to use to read Elmo’s Tricky Tongue Twisters, a delightful Little Golden Book written by Sarah Albee and illustrated by Maggie Swanson. Follow along as “Grover gobbles grapes as he gazes at gray geese in the green grass” and “Oscar makes noise that annoys the boisterous oysters” in this hilarious collection of ridiculous rhymes starring the Sesame Street gang. Expect lots of giggles as little ones try to read along and repeat the silly sayings meant to trip up the tongue!
After you’ve finished watching, join Elmo in his #ShareTheLaughter challenge as he spreads kindness by sharing jokes online.
