The book, entitled Sunny Day, will soon be available through Random House… although not soon enough! As exciting as it is, this release should be no surprise to fans: after the show’s premiere on PBS on November 10, 1969, the first tie-in book, The Sesame Street Storybook, hit readers’ shelves just two years later. Fans needed more of this heartwarmingly wholesome (and educational!) series.

According to Entertainment Weekly, who got the exclusive, the book will accompany the series’ iconic song lyrics with illustrations that will feature “a different artist’s interpretation of the lyrics, resulting in a unique tribute to Sesame Street and the generations of children who have loved the show.” And we all love nostalgia.

I don’t know about you, but October 22 can’t arrive quickly enough. And I know I’ll get one, because I pre-ordered… did you?
