"International moves, relocations, and goodbyes to grandparents, friends, teachers, and more are tough for kids, but Sesame Street has welcomed a new character named Charlie, who's helping highlight some of the opportunities and challenges military children face.
'Military kids often feel apart from their civilian companions because they don’t feel like their lifestyle and experiences are understood by other kids," Dr. Kelly Blasko, the Defense Health Agency's Program Lead for Military Kids Connect and Sesame Street for Military Families tells Romper. "Representation on a popular television show provides the opportunity to bridge that gap and show civilian children just how much like them military children are. And just how much they can learn from military kids.' "
"Violet Tinnirello, 10, the daughter of Warwick residents Doug and Annie Tinnirello, has been on the road to stardom, singing, dancing and acting on stage and screen as well as appearing in TV commercials since she was three years old.
Last year at this time she was invited to perform on the Sesame Street float during the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.
This year happens to be the 50th anniversary of Sesame Street, the first and most successful children’s television program of its kind, featuring the popular Jim Henson's Muppets, animation, live shorts, humor and celebrity appearances.
And Violet Tinnirello will now be the new kid on the street."
For the first time in over two decades, there's a new kid on the Street. Violet plays 8-year-old Charlotte, known as Charlie to her friends. Scroll down to read some articles about what's to come.
