Finally, the group celebrates Earth Day in the open air.
Official product description
The Sesame Street gang is going camping! Oscar knows just the right camp site... his favorite "Grouch Camp." As you can imagine, it's not very tidy. Soon Big Bird is raking, Bert and Ernie are picking up Figgy Fizz bottles and everyone is helping to clean up. In the evening around the campfire, Big Bird says, "I like Grouch Camp now. The woods look better when we take care of them." Oscar gets to keep all the trash for his collection.
The next day all of the campers explore the outdoors and discover what a beautiful place our world is. "Mommy told me we live on a planet called Earth," said Grover. "And the Earth has many wonderful things on it."
Trees live on the Earth with us. When trees start to grow, they are so little that even Grover can plant one. They can grow so big it seems like they touch the sky. Trees give us shade, and places for birds to build nests and lay eggs. Apples grow on trees, too. Leaves turn beautiful colors like orange, red and yellow in the fall.
Earth has fresh air to breathe, water to drink and big oceans. Grover and Elmo discover that fish live in oceans and streams, but there are many other strange and marvelous creatures that live in water, too.
Sesame Street friends like the outdoors so much they have a party to celebrate it... with a wonderful Happy Earthday cake. They agree that we should all do our best to help take care of our beautiful earth.
