Sesame Street Treasury: ABC & 123
Learning words and numbers is fun with Big Bird, Elmo, Grover, and the other Sesame Street friends along to help. In the first half of this sturdy oversized book, every page features a letter, A to Z, accompanied by a scene featuring objects starting with that letter. The M spread, for example, shows a moonlit mountain landscape, with Sesame Street detectives Ernie and Bert investigating (with a magnifying glass, of course) the mystery of the missing mitten. Young readers will take pleasure in pointing out the mitten under a tree with a mouse curled up inside and a moose lurking nearby. In the second half of the book, illustrations depict one broom sweeping, swooshing; two hammers pounding, pounding; three big bales of hay; four round rubber tires, and so on up to 20, then continuing with 30, 40, 50, etc., to 100. By then, it takes an entire Sesame Street Fair to show all the items so far enumerated. Two educational books in one terrific treasury!

I Have to Go: Featuring Jim Henson's Sesame Street Muppets

(Sesame Street Toddler Books)

By Anna Ross
Little Grover can't stop to play as he hurries home: he has to go. His mommy understands, and she accompanies him to the bathroom, where he goes all by himself.

Description from Publisher


Incorporating the charm of the familiar Muppet characters as toddlers (all identified by "Little" before their names) and the magic of the late Jim Henson, these four inaugural titles in the Sesame Street Toddler Books series are bound to be equally appealing to youngsters and parents. In easily accessible language, Ross addresses, in each volume, a single topic of importance to the two- to four-year-old set. I Have to Go gently offers reinforcement to those involved in toilet training, as Little Grover dashes past all of his pals in search of his mother. She leads him to the potty, and tells him how proud of him she is. The themes of the other books are: the importance of using such words and phrases as "please" and "I'm sorry"; the satisfaction that comes from accomplishing tasks like building a tower of blocks or getting oneself dressed; and the wisdom of succumbing to sleep at nap time. Gorbaty's vivid, clearly defined pictures focus on the engaging characters without the distraction of busy backgrounds. The books' "super-sturdy" pages are just that, and should hold up well to eager little hands.

Baby Faces

(Sesame Beginnings Board Book, Level 1)

By Wendy Cheyette Lewison
As part of their earliest development, babies learn to focus on the faces around them and, eventually, to connect facial expressions with emotions. Imitation of facial expressions is also part of early child development. Here’s a gallery of big, bold, bright Sesame Street Muppet faces–each showing a different expression. A mylar mirror at the end encourages baby to make faces too.The text is big and bold against a tone-on-tone patterned background. Mylar is used throughout to accent the artwork.

Level 1 Books are geared towards Birth - 6 Months

Description from Publisher


Baby Faces is an excellent book to introduce babies to books and reading. The book features simple, closeups of characters' faces. Opposite each face is a simple two-word phrase to explain what each character is feeling (ie, "boo-boo" for a sad Elmo wearing a bandage). The final spread, "Baby Try", has a mylar mirror, which can help attract the attention of younger babies and encourage experimentation with facial expressions in older babies. Pictures are large, bright, and generally two-tone, which makes the book perfect for young babies' limited vision. Although the age range recommended by the publisher is birth-6 months, I would say that most parents can realistically hold off on this book until 2-3 months.

Pictures are bright and colorful, and the book includes a rattle that appears on each page to help keep babies' attention. Parents can shake the rattle in simple rhythms to help babies understand the rhythmic nature of language.
