In new book, educator looks at ‘Sesame Street’ through ‘lens of faith’ – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

When we cast a critical or observant eye on U.S. culture, high or low, we bring ourselves to the task, our life experiences, but we can also adopt a specific point of view, as Vacaville author Gary Dreibelbis has in his newly released nonfiction book, “The Gospel According to ‘Sesame Street’: Learning, Life, Love, and Death.”

In its 150 pages on the Westbow Press imprint, he examines the iconic children’s TV show through what he calls “a lens of faith,” ascribing Bible references to its co-founder and characters, such as Elmo, Big Bird, and adding moral and spiritual dimensions to the show’s lessons in equality, social justice, kindness, and how to deal with tragedy, among others.
