My First Story Reader with 3 Sesame Street Storybooks: So it Grows; Let's Pretend; In the Garden was created by developmental education experts and features stories for babies and toddlers ages 6 months to 3 years. The three interactive storybooks, featuring familiar Sesame Street characters, are designed for use in the My First Story Reader console (included).
My First Story Reader uses two play options that teach the first steps to reading, sound identification, matching, shapes and colors. In the "Read to Me Mode," children turn the pages to hear a friendly narrator. Fun sounds and lively music make the story come to life. In "Activity Mode," children press the three big buttons to answer simple questions about colors and shapes.
The three storybooks are spiral-bound and made of sturdy board pages that hold up to rough handling. Here is a quick synopsis of the collection, which features Elmo, Big Bird, Zoe, and more Sesame Street characters:
- So It Grows. Elmo and his friends discover plants, animals, and insects in nature, and learn how they grow from small to large.
- Let's Pretend. Children can join the Sesame Street crew as it "sails the sea" in the bath tub. Pretend a decorated paper bag is a puppet, turn an egg carton into a jewelry box, and have more imaginative adventures.
- In the Garden. Elmo takes his friends through the steps of preparing, planting, nurturing, and harvesting a garden.
