David Kamp's meticulous research provides a history of the Children's Television Workshop, and narrator David Sadzin is a fine guide through the neighborhoods of Make Believe and Sesame Street. Sadzin's friendly, open narration captures the feel of the '60s and '70s--that sense of wanting to make change for the greater good. Devoted to improving the quality of children's television, CTW figures Joan Ganz Cooney and Lloyd Morrisett and actor/writer/producers Rita Moreno and Marlo Thomas explain the political obstacles they faced in order to air such groundbreaking programs as "Free to be You and Me," "The Electric Company," and "Sesame Street." In a matter-of-fact tone, Sadzin delivers the behind-the-scenes struggles as well as the sunny days. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
