A request: B and D sketches

    My 5-year-old niece is apparently having trouble differentiating between the lowercase b and lowercase d. I thought to myself: Where better to go in this situation than to Sesame St?

    I was wondering if anyone could recall any sketches, either in the current series or the classic series, that specifically addresses this issue. I can half remember one from the early 80s that has the words 'the other... way... around' in it, but no idea where I would find that one.

    I know there's plenty of sketches that look at the lowercase b and the lowercase d individually I could show her as well - any favourites?

    Any help would be appreciated

    Does this help at all?

    Thanks Hubert it most certainly does :) This is the one I'm thinking of, hope she likes it. Why wouldn't she?

    There's a classic Electric Company clip that might help her remember, too; the "bed" made of letters is a good visual aid. (If you put the D first, there's no room to sleep on it...)
