My daughter is obsessed with Sesame Street, so I knew she'd love this book. I love the use of the characters to work through tough situations. This book would also be ideal for teaching feelings. I am a behavior therapist for children with disabilities and can definitely see myself using this in therapy situations to work through those conflicts and big emotions. This is great for early learners and did a fantastic job outlining resolution to conflict for our little ones.

Thank you to Lerner Publishing Group and NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for my honest review.

An excellent book with beloved Sesame Street characters to help teach children how to handle conflict and regulate their emotions. Perfect for preschool to kindergarten. A great place for parents and educators to start important discussions.

I love this book and will likely buy it for use during counseling. My students will enjoy the familiar characters and nice photos. The lessons are great and I love its focus on compromise and coping strategies. Great book! Thank you to the author, publisher, and netgalley for the advanced copy!

This book is fantastic! It uses the Sesame characters to show conflict, feelings and how to get through the conflict. I like the examples and repetition. The pictures really help younger children to not only hear, but also see the conflicts and resolutions which helps them to remember it and relate to it. I liked how at the end it gave a recap and a list of how to handle conflicts appropriately. Great read!

Thanks to NetGalley and Lerner Publishing go to access to this ARC.

My son had to have this when he saw the cover, and of course, I had to read it entirely using the characters' voices. It's definitely a useful tool for children, as my six-year-old didn't understand what "conflict" was, so it was a good learning opportunity. Hopefully, he came away better equipped to communicate with his brother. All our favorite Sesame Street characters were represented, as well as a few we aren't so familiar with, so we get to learn some new characters. You really can't go wrong with Sesame Street and I'm sure we'll be reading this book over and over again.

I would definitely recommend having this book in every children's collection and more than one copy in school library collections. It is so important that children understand and name what they are feeling while also dealing with it in a healthy way. This book shows children how to do that by giving children different visual scenarios and how they should handle them. It also tells children different, healthy ways of dealing with anger such as walking away, telling someone your feeling, and even breathing exercises and meditation. School counselors can also benefit from having this book in their arsenal. If I had to say anything negative about the book, I would say that it is a bit too long.

The children's book "Let's Talk about It!" is beautifully illustrated with familiar Sesame Street characters and real families with the diversity that Sesame Street is known for represented. The book is divided into several sections: everyone has conflicts, big feelings break, belly breathing, and talk it out. It also has a glossary and more resources at the end.
The book suggests five steps to work out conflict and then gives examples such as The Count counting to five, a girl hugging her lovie, Cooke Monster doing belly breathing. There are also examples of common conflicts that could come up between children such as a friend not sharing a toy. Again, specific characters give examples of what they would do in the specific situation.
In both the big feelings break and talk it out sections of the book techniques like belly breathing are explained in more detail but in an age appropriate way for little ones.
This is really an appealing book with lots of great information for young children.
