Big Bird invites the reader to play a game of "Big Bird Says", which takes the form of a rhyme. Big Bird and his Sesame friends illustrate the actions that the reader should take, which quickly go from easy:
- "Big Bird says to touch your nose. Shut your eyes. Then touch your toes."
- "Pull a wagon. Bounce a ball. Walk on stilts five feet tall."
- "Big Bird says to catch a goose. Find someone whose tooth is loose."
