Teaching Children About Death, Through Big Bird
Poor Big Bird. He learned the hard lessons about death. And now he might have to learn about unemployment as well.
Here’s the description of the following Sesame Street scene:
The actor who played Mr. Hooper on Sesame Street, Will Lee, died. The Sesame Street people decided to let the character die too, and used it as an opportunity to teach children about death.
This clip demonstrates how to treat death in an honest and helpful way better than any evasive or euphemistic gibberish I’ve heard from allegedly mature people.
Grab some tissues and hit play:
