I’mfeeling like sharing a classic today.  This music video was created by the Plaza Sésamo production and was included in the Putumayo Kids Sesame Street Playground CD/DVD set.  This set is a great way to watch some favorite Sesame Street characters with their amigos around the world and to listen to music from different cultures.

Not sure if my discovery is going to come as news to you, but I definitely had a cathartic moment when I discovered Aprende con Sesame on iTunes.
