Bert and Ernie Meet Sinterklaas
The script from the Sesamstraat CD Hoor Wie Klopt Daar Kinderen: Sinterklaas in Sesamstraat is translated from the Dutch. Sinterklaas helps Bert and Ernie understand what friendship really is. It is long, as the entire CD is here, but could be shortened for classroom use, perhaps by cutting some of the songs (other songs would need to be used in any case).
