One thought on “It's Not Easy Being Green: And Other Things to Consider

  1. Cathy DuPont

    Jim Henson was a genius. He was a wonderful man/child and philosopher who children all over the world know as Kermit. Yes, it's one of the basic truths of the physical universe, Sprocket. Things don't disappear. They just change, and change, and change again"---Doc from Fraggle Rock.Message? I got no message! I'm a puppet, man. This is all shamke believe? Like everything! Everybody! We're all puppets! That's why we gotta boogie boogie boogie!!!---Dr. Teeth.I have a lot of great memories from the [...]

  2. Beth E

    I used this book to choose the quote that would go under my picture in my senior yearbook at college. We had to be able to show citation for the quote we chose, and this book was perfect for that. It has a special place in my heart.

  3. Heather Faville

    Listening is the first step and the last step.~Cantus FraggleTo those of you who know me, you are aware that I am a Muppet fan through and through. I love everything to do with Jim Henson's creations and the puppeteers who bring these loveable characters to life. So when I received It's Not Easy Being Green: And Other Things to Consider as a Christmas gift I was thrilledI believe there was even an *arm flail* involved. Jim inspired people to be better than they thought they could be. To be more [...]

    For Christmas a few years ago, Forrest gave me My Life as a Furry Red Monster. I devoured the book on Christmas day, interrupting the family gathering to share tidbits of Kevin's story. So, when I saw It's Not Easy Being Green: And Other Things to Consider at the discount store today, I knew I had to pick it up (along with Before You Leap: A Frog's Eye View of Life's Greatest Lessons-- which I'll read this weekend). Of course, I read the book in under an hour. It's a wonderful tribute to Jim Hen [...]

    Jim Henson was one of the only "celebrities" that I literally burst into tears when I learned of his death. This book is a collection of quotes by and about Jim Henson and the characters he played. For example:"He changed our lives. He changed the world.And we'll continue his work, because that's how inspiration operates. People die, but inspiration lives and grows. Inspired by his gentleness, we'll fill the world with gentleness. Inspired by his vision, we'll fill the world with vision. Inspire [...]

  6. Willow Redd

    Very inspirational book full of quotes from Jim Henson, the Muppets, Fraggle Rock, and the people and productions Henson created over the years. Henson was one of those men who touched so many lives through his work.Whether it comes from song lyrics, thoughts from his journals, or words of wisdom from his coworkers; each quote in this book has the ability to lift you up and inspire you to greater things. Well, that's what it did for me anyway.

    How can you not LOVE Jim Henson and the Muppets? If you don't, please discontinue reading and consider our friendship over. ;)This was a really cute collection of wonderful quotes from various Muppet projects, guests of the Muppet Show, Henson himself, his family and other Muppet performers. I read much of this to my kids, as they also love the Muppets too. (That's how i know they're mine.) Here are some of my favourites from the book:"It's not easy being greenWhen green is all there is to be, I [...]

  8. Keith Chawgo

    This is an interesting book for die hard fans of Jim Henson. It is a colleciton of letters, transcripts, observations, etc by the great man himself. Although there is some very heartfelt messages to be found between the pages, it really is the sketches and pictures that really sell this book and make it stand out. You will not learn anything new when reading this but you do somewhat delve into the man behind the muppets and a little bit of the magic he was able to create.There is no depth about [...]

  9. Nik

    This audio book was short and sweet at just over an hour. It was narrated by Whoopi, Lithgow and Lewis with lots of quotes, songs and silliness. Anyone who loves The Muppets, Fraggles, Skeksis, Mystics, or Labyrinth Goblins will be pleased as pie with this book. Jim Henson was amazing. I got a little misty-eyed at a few points.

  10. Carol

    Small book with wonderful quotes from Jim, his friends and family, and the wonderful muppets he created. A wonderful man who will be loved by generations to come. I see that when I listen to my grandson's laughter as he is watching Sesame Street just like his mommy 30 years ago.

  11. Kristin

    Horribly disappointing. I love Jim Henson, I could never be disappointed by anything by him or about him, but here I am, disappointed. All the quotes were about the exact same things - nothing interesting, nothing to think about. Although I did appreciate thoughts by Dr. Teeth.

  12. Julie

    Words of wisdom from the Muppetswhat's not to love?! And I don't mean by just Kermit, but the Fraggles, Emmett Otter, and Jim Henson himself A great coffee table and reference book for the masses.

  13. Melissa

    I grew up on The Muppets and all their variations. I also went to University of Maryland, where Jim Henson went. This is a fantastic collection of quotes from cast and crew (muppets included!.)

  14. Lindsey

    Jim Henson was by far the most influential artist of my childhood; there is so much to say about him but there simply aren't words to describe just how much of a creative genius he truly was. He lived for his audience and his work, creating gentle and endearing characters that influenced children while making their parents chuckle. By bringing people together, regardless of age, Henson made education and entertainment a true family activity for the first time in television history. Henson, even [...]

  15. James Biser

    Fantastic."The word say 'It's not easy being green,' but the song is about knowing who you are, and in it you hear Jim's message most clearly.He believed people are good and they want to do their best and no matter how or why we might be different from anybody else, we should learn to love who we are, and be proud of it." -Ray CharlesRecently, I have been thinking and reading a lot about what makes a person who they are -- identity. I read what some psychologists and philosophers said, but the s [...]

  16. Mark

    Cute, easy to read, and sometimes repetitive this collection of anecdotes about Jim Henson is more like 3.5 out of 5 stars. I would have liked more quotes from Henson's characters like Kermit and a wider variety of quotes from Henson himself. Overall, it's a nice little book that should prove as a simple book for anyone to read.

  17. Katy Ann

    This was like finding an old letter a good friend sent you. Inspiring, uplifting, insightful to a creative genius and happy in your heart. The book breaks down the characters and gives some wonderful insight into Jim Henson.

  18. David

    Message? I got no message! I'm a puppet, man. This is all shamMake believe! Like everything! Everybody! We're all puppets! That's why we gotta boogie boogie boogie!!!-Dr. Teeth

  19. Sandy Marks Simpson

    I highly recommend the audio book for this. The quotes are read by the charactersKermit, Dr. Teeth, Fraggles, etc. Really fun.

  20. Liberty Arrow

    This book made me smile from ear to ear. I was overwhelmed with happiness once I finished it and felt a strong need to want to go out and spread positivity into the world, even if just for a little while.Jim Henson was such an amazing and talented person and you could really tell that he enjoyed the work he did. I mean, how could you not notice it when it was shining through every one of his characters?I hope that I can turn to this book to inspire me when I'm losing my spark of motivation, and [...]

  21. Jessica

    This was a great, inspirational little book. I recommend this to anyone who is a Jim Henson fan.I meant to keep the book long enough to share a few of my favorite quotes but it had to make its way back to the library yesterday. However, I would seriously consider purchasing it because it was just that good. It's a little bit of Jim whispering in your ear everyday. It is what made him wonderful and what he wanted to share with the world to make it wonderful as well. It's refreshing to see someone [...]

  22. Jennifer

    Jim Henson was one of those truly remarkable people who seemed to spread happiness and hope wherever he went. This book, edited by his daughter, Cheryl, gathers together quotes by and about Jim and the Muppets. Most of the quotes aren't new to me, but all compiled together they make up a vague portrait of Jim and his mission: to spread peace and good cheer wherever he could.By everyone's account, Jim was very much like his most beloved and well known character, Kermit the Frog. He was a madcap, [...]

  23. Angela Boland

    Synopsis: A small collection of quotes from Jim Henson, his friends and family, and his most memorable characters.Jim Henson defined my childhood. When I was really little, we basically had only PBS for me to watch and I learned pretty much everything I needed to know from Sesame Street. And those characters are still paving the way to the future for children today. Needless to say, The Muppets (as well as the man who created them) have a lot to say about life, the universe and everything. Altho [...]

  24. Abby

    This is yet another book that I have plenty of positive things to say about. From my perspective, Jim Henson was a great man, an awesome puppeteer and a visionary (as he somehow knew some of what the future held while he was alive). Jim had a belief in the power of positive thinking, as well as looking on the bright side of things and life the way he did. Of course, although he had that, he was very humble and honest (as he knew he had flaws and made mistakes, like everyone else), and those qual [...]

    I previously read and reviewed the condensed version of this book:/review/show/And though I still feel mostly the same way, I think I may be leaning a little more toward bad editing of the smaller book. Though Jim's wisdom is still not super-deep, it's still deeper than the short book would lead one to believe.This version makes it ever more clear that Jim and Kermit are one and the same (like the sweet sound that calls the young sailors, and the voices that call your name when you're half aslee [...]
