I started my President's Day off right by going up to the Lincoln Square
Barnes and Noble to see Bob from Sesame Street read some stories and sing some songs. The place was packed full of kids and I couldn't even get a seat! Figures.
It was an event to raise Downs syndrome awareness. He read a good book
called "We'll Paint the Octopus Red" that taught us that there's pretty much nothing you can't do with a little brother who has Downs syndrom if you're willing to be patient and help them And then he read/sang a story called "Everybody Asked About You", but I didn't stick around for all of that one.
Would you believe that Bob is 75? I thought he looked a little old when I saw him, but not that old.
