The weather is getting warmer and everything is about to be green—or, in the case of our friends on Sesame Street, go green.
2020 marked the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and many of us are looking for tools and resources to help us do our part for the planet. When it comes to making green changes, it can be hard to know where to start. Luckily, Elmo, Abby, Big Bird, and friends are here to help. Our Spring 2020 season includes a series with beloved characters from Sesame Street introducing sustainability to kids, while a single title on counting helps kids connect to their communities.
Go Green with Sesame Street
How can kids take steps for a greener planet? It’s surprisingly simple! Super Grover helps teach kids to save water, while Oscar is all about reducing, reusing, and recycling. Bert and Ernie learn that saving energy can be as easy as flipping a switch! Each title includes a hands-on activity to encourage further Earth-friendly engagement. All the while, Sesame Street friends let kids know that helping Earth isn’t just the right thing to do—it can be fun too!
I See 1, 2, 3: Count Your Community with Sesame Street
Who better than the Count to help kids count in their communities? Readers visit the library, the pool, the playground, and other favorite places to learn to count by twos, tens, and more. Familiar objects such as books, fruits, and paper clips introduce basic addition and subtraction as well. When you add silly asides from Sesame Street friends plus everyday math moments, what do you get? One fun counting journey!
