It was a busy day on Sesame Street. Everyone was preparing for the big art show.
Aliyah Mae Robinson, age 4, from Rochester, Minnesota, was coming to judge the show. Aliyah was bringing Aimee, Beth and Rhea to help her. The best artist would get a bright blue ribbon.
“Hurry everyone!” Big Bird called. “Aliyah will be here any minute.”
Finally, Aliyah arrived with Aimee, Beth and Rhea. Big Bird was so happy to see Aliyah that he gave her a warm hug and welcomed everyone to Sesame Street.
After pointing out all the wonderful sights on Sesame Street, Big Bird explained that the judging was about to begin. “First stop is Oscar's trash can,” he said.
Oscar had made a most unusual sculpture out of some things he'd found in the trash. Aliyah was very impressed. But Oscar thought he had a little more work to do, so he searched through his can for the finishing touch. As trash came flying out of the can, Aliyah spotted the perfect piece - a flattened fluget horn.
“Wow, that's trashy!” said Oscar. “That should do it! Thanks, Aliyah.”
Next, they visited Cookie Monster. He had made a giant picture of a cookie. Aliyah could practically taste the scrumptious-looking treat. “That is the best cookie I've ever seen,” declared Aliyah.
“Mmmm, Aliyah right. Cookie!” Cookie Monster said as he took a large bite out of his picture.
Aliyah giggled. “Now it's perfect,” she said.
Ernie and Bert waved Aliyah, Aimee, Beth and Rhea over to see their baseball mural. They had painted a grass-green baseball diamond covered with bats and gloves. Bert paced back and forth nervously. Ernie tossed a ball to Aliyah. “Nice catch, Aliyah,” he said.
Next, Aliyah walked over to Zoe, who was sadly holding up an empty frame. “I didn't finish my painting,” Zoe sighed.
“Look at your smock,” Aliyah said with a big smile. “It's as beautiful as any painting I've ever seen.”
Zoe quickly took off her smock and hung it inside the frame. Then she blew Aliyah a big kiss! “Thanks, Aliyah!”
Big Bird guided the judges over to the Count's display of numbers. The Count had carved several giant numbers out of wood and painted them in different patterns - delightful dots, cheeky checks, and stupendous stripes.
“One, two, three, four, five, six. Six super numbers.” Aliyah counted out loud and the Count applauded. Aliyah smiled and followed Big Bird down Sesame Street.
“Hey, Elmo,” called Big Bird. “Are you ready for our judges?”
Elmo pulled aside a curtain to reveal a large picture made up of brightly colored triangles. “Wow,” said Aliyah, “I've never seen so many triangles in one place before!”
“Elmo made it especially for Telly,” Elmo explained. “Telly loves triangles.”
“Well, Aliyah,” Big Bird said. “It's time for you to pick the winner.”
Aliyah groaned and plopped down on a bench facing Big Bird. “I'm in trouble, Big Bird. All the paintings are so great! How will I ever pick a winner?”
Big Bird shook his head sadly. “I wish I could help. Too bad there's only one blue ribbon.” Aliyah jumped up. “That's it, Big Bird. You're a genius!” “I am?” Big Bird smiled happily.
Aliyah ran inside Mr. Hooper's store. Sheame back out holding a handful of blue ribbons. “Everybody's a winner on Sesame Street!” Aliyah shouted.
“Hurray!” Big Bird said. “Let's have a party to celebrate.”
“I'd love to stay,” Aliyah said, “but I have to get back to Rochester, Minnesota, along with Aimee, Beth and Rhea.
“Well don't forget to come back and judge our dance contest,” said Ernie.
“I won't,” called Aliyah, as she waved good-bye to all her friends on Sesame Street.
