Sesame Street has spent the last 50 years on the forefront of child development, stimulating and nurturing the minds of preschoolers not only through the iconic TV show, but also through its multimedia, including books, games, mobile apps, and community engagement initiatives. Since its inception in 1969, Sesame Workshop´s mission has always been to prepare children for school -- and to guide them to grow ´´smarter, stronger, and kinder.´´ Now this beloved brand offers a unique guidebook, written by Senior VP of Curriculum and Content of Sesame Workshop Dr. Rosemarie Truglio, covering everything a parent needs to know to get their preschooler ready for lifelong learning. Each chapter focuses on a key area -- not only with the nitty-gritty subjects of Language and Math, but also with Logic & Reasoning, Social & Emotional Development, and Creative Arts Expression. With easy-to-read charts, bullets points, and graphics, this guide clearly outlines benchmarks and goals for children ages 2-5 -- while also providing friendly tips, hints, and activities that parents can do to make ´´education´´ a bit less daunting for their child. Best of all, the activities in Sesame Street: Ready for School! can instill a lifelong curiosity in a child that will make for a bright future.
