Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

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! (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

From the Inside Flap

Children can learn their ABC's and 1, 2, 3's with their favorite Sesame Street characters in this colorful, fun, and educational hardcover. What better way to acquire these important early concepts than with their Muppet friends? The ABC Book of Words allows children to learn the alphabet and new vocabulary on every beautiful spread. The Counting Book has number examples on Sesame Street from "one broom swooshing" to "100 Twiddlebugs at the Twiddlebug Fair!" Together, these books make for a terrific over-size hardcover packed with value!

I bought this book for my 16 month old son. He loves The Sesame Street Word book and thought this would be a good addition to his collection. He likes it okay, but still prefers the Word Book hands down. It starts with the alphabet devoting one to two pages per letter. Each page(s) has the letter and pictures of things starting with the letter. It also has the word naming the picture. I agree with other reviewers..some letters were not depicted very well compared to others. The second half covers numbers 1-20 then skip counts by tens numbers 20-100. All are done with pictures. If you had one book to buy I'd get The Sesame Street Word Book. However if you want to add to other educational books you have, this is a great purchase.

Format: Hardcover
Pages are big pictures with one word text next to an object. Apple, airplane, bicycle, boat, etc. Nice feature, 2 books in one. 1st half, abc, 2nd half 1,2,3. I wish there were more words for the neglected letters q,u,v,x,y,z. I liked that the pages where completely colored. No blank areas. Good sized book. All the characters show up in the book, plus a few more which I liked. There is no set theme or story, just the alpha and numbers. Good for little ones that just are learning objects and pointing to them. I enjoy that with my 19 month old son.

This is a great book for kids who enjoy Sesame street and are learning their numbers and their alphabet. The book is large and colorful and is nice because it covers both letters and numbers. Would recommend to anyone who has a toddler in tow!

I bought this book for my 14-month-old nephew and he absolutely loves it! The pages are big, yet simple with lots of stuff for baby to look at. Each page is a full color picture devoted to a letter of the alphabet or a number. Perfect for promoting early learning skills. Given the choice, I'd definitely buy this book again.

I go to the the library with my 4 year old every three weeks. When we check out our selection of stories, I always include an ABC alphabet book along with a counting book. I could never find books that counted over the number 10. Very frustrating to demonstrate and teach a child the concept of counting with so many limited number counting books out there. Finally we found this book, that counts from 1-100 step by step. No skipping by 10! When we finally found this book, I checked it out 3 times in a row. I searched online for this book to purchase so we can continue building his counting skills. I was so happy when we found it here on Amazon. Without hesitation I ordered this book to keep in our collection. I am so delighted, that he is now able to count to 100 by memory! I can now share this book with our newest little addition to our family and give her a head start on counting. We need more children's books like this one, that does'nt limit our kids abilities! Thanks so very much!

This book is loaded with fun pictures that the authors and illustrators creatively designed to include as many words that start with the letter of the page, without being disjointed. The "S" page, for example, features a park scene where various characters are going down the slide, playing on the swings, running through the sprinklers, and even eating a sandwich by a sandbox! Some letter pages have more words than others, but really, how creative can you get with letters like X?! The number section is darling too, and even introduces counting by 10's. My 3 year old loves it, and will definitely continue to grow into it!

My two year old son absolutely LOVES this book! There are many colorful and interesting drawings of objects on every page. I find that my son's vocabulary has greatly increased since Sesame Street Treasury ABC and 123 came into our house since a wide variety of words are clearly depicted. Of course, all the Sesame Street characters are also included in the illustrations which accompany each letter or number. This is a fun and educational book and I would very highly recommend it to anyone buying for a toddler.

This is one of our favorite children's books. My preschooler loves it. It takes us a few bedtimes to finish it, then they want to start again. The illustrations are very good and unique. I've never seen anything like it. It's a great learning book.

I believe the the ABC portion is from the late 80's. On one page the muppets are drinking soda. Pretty funny, I doubt we'd see that in a modern book. I still love it!
