CNN and Sesame Street are teaming up for a special town hall this Saturday morning to help children better understand why life is different now due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The ABC’s of COVID-19 will air on Saturday, April 25 at 9 AM ET on CNN. The 90-minute special will provide information for families as it answers kids’ questions in the kind, gentle, age-appropriate manner that Sesame Street is known for.

Sanjay Gupta, Big Bird, and Erica Hill

The special will be hosted by CNN’s Chief Medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, anchor Erica Hill, and Big Bird. They’ll be joined by some other familiar faces from Sesame Street too, including Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Rosita, and Grover as they cover issues like homeschooling, worry, screen time, and playdates.

If you or your child have a question you’d like to have answered by Big Bird and friends, you can submit it now on CNN’s website.

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ll tape it and see if it will be helpful to my kids, ages 5 and 4.
