C

ookie Monster, the big
blue star of television's
Sesame Street, visited
with children at the
Jewish Community Center's Sarah
& Irving Pitt Child Development
Center Jan. 12 and helped them
bake some of his favorite delicacies.
While in the JCC's "kid kitchen"
with children ages 2-5, Cookie
Monster was treated to the "C is
for Cookie" song by the young-
sters. Cookie Monster gave out lots
of hugs to the children.
"He was big and blue and white
and black — and I made cookies
with him," said Maya Golan, 4, of
Bloomfield Hills.
"Cookie Monster loves cookies,"

said Haley Wise, 4, of West
Bloomfield. "I held his hand. He
didn't eat cookies because he didn't
want his fur to get all mushy. I
think I saw him before when I was
a little girl, and I was afraid. Now I
love him."
When all the cookies were deco-
rated, the children and Cookie
Monster delivered the sweets to res-
idents at the nearby Fleischman
Residence. The children also per-
formed some winter songs for the
residents.
"The residents and the kids had
so much fun that I'm going to
partner up some of our preschool
classes on a regular basis," said
Robin Herman, assistant director
of the preschool.
Cookie Monster was in town to
play a leading role in Sesame Street
Live: 1-2-3 ... Imagine! at the Fox
Theatre from Jan. 29-Feb. 8. ❑
