Mood Mon­ster

Sesame Work­shop

Some­times the best way for kids to nav­i­gate their own emo­tions is to rec­og­nize them in some­one else. In Sesame Street’s Mood Mon­ster, chil­dren meet and cus­tomize Bud­dy, a friend­ly mon­ster who needs help iden­ti­fy­ing his feel­ings. Kids select a feel­ing and then watch Bud­dy act it out. Then they guess what might bring that feel­ing on. Mood Mon­ster can be a par­tic­u­lar­ly effec­tive tool for coun­selors to use with chil­dren who seem to be strug­gling.
