Preschoolers will be thoroughly entertained as Elmo and Professor Grover teach a real preschool class about the alphabet, letter names, and letter sounds in this first DVD in the Sesame Street: Preschool Is Cool series. The format is classic Sesame Street: a mix of music, puppetry, animation, and live action that translates into 50 minutes of pure fun and learning. Professor Grover has a very specific lesson plan for teaching his preschool class about the alphabet, and the preparation entails finding something that starts with every letter of the alphabet. The professor has some trouble remembering the order of the letters and finding an item for each letter, but luckily his assistant Elmo comes to the rescue. Interspersed throughout Grover and Elmo's lesson are several renditions of the alphabet song in a variety of styles, plus a handful of Sesame Street vignettes, including Telly's membership in the Letter of the Month Club, his stint as a contestant on the "Hurry Up, You're Running Out of Time Show," a letter circus, and Dr. Grover playing the role of an alphabet specialist in the hit show "A's Anatomy." The classic "African Alphabet" music video is included as a bonus feature. Developing early reading skills is all about fun when the Sesame Street gang is involved! (Ages 2 to 5) --Tami Horiuchi

My toddler loves this DVD. She already knows her alphabets so his was just for fun. Be mindful that Grover says the alphabet the wrong way a few times and the way he says it is quite catchy. My toddler likes to say it the way grover says it now, but she does know the difference. So my advice is make sure your kid knows the correct way of saying the alphabet before watching it.

My 20 month old son loves Elmo, Grover, Telly, and their alphabet antics! This is a great DVD to reinforce what your child is already learning about the alphabet. Great songs and skits. One reviewer wrote that the traditional ABC song is not in this DVD but that is completely not true. They sing it at least 3 times. Two of the times is has a slightly "funky" beat but it still has the same meter and sound! Thanks Sesame Street for a great DVD and teaching tool!

I bought this because my daughter loves sesame street. She is only 1 but she loves the music and gets excited when she see's all the characters esp Elmo. I really love that this dvd is repetitive with the abc's songs and in their show segments. All the songs are catchy and the shows are so much fun, it's a great way to teach your kids the alphabet and will be sure to grab their attention everytime! I recommend this to everyone with kids!

I purchased this for my toddler who, like most, is in love with all things Elmo and we needed a DVD for the car for him. I assumed that this would be just all about Elmo and his explanation of the alphabet. This wasn't the case - it starts with Grover doing most of the talking and Elmo chimes in here and there and then we leave them entirely and go over to Telly and songs and other things. If you're looking to get something that is heavy on the Elmo, I wouldn't recommend this item. I'm going to order an episode of Elmo's World instead.

We've been working with our 2-year-old on the alphabet for a few months and I wanted a fun DVD that could support our teaching. I'd checked out some other videos from the library but they were painfully boring. Since my son loves Elmo, I was glad when this one came out. It's a great DVD. The sketches are engaging and the songs are very catchy. My son watches it a few times each week. And my husband and I love it too!

If anything, my daughter loves this DVD a bit too much. She picks up the box, runs to the couch, points at the TV and says "Elmo! Elmo! Elmo! Elmo!" until I either give in or hide. We don't let her watch much TV, so this has basically become the only TV we watch with her. On the bright side - it is very well done, the songs are good, there are plenty of variations on the alphabet song, and they really do focus on teaching the alphabet. If she has to watch something, I feel like this is at least educational. Maybe it's because I grew up with Sesame Street, but compared to a lot of modern kid's shows, I also find it very watchable. I'm not as enthused about watching it 5X/week as my daughter is, but it's definitely bearable for the adults.

My 2 year old daughter had the ABC's mostly figured out when I bought her this DVD, now she has mastered it. On long car rides or rainy days she wants to watch it over and over again, and I really don't mind it. Elmo is a great character and this is a great educational DVD!

I got this video for my grandson since he loves Elmo so much! I can say that this one is his favorite, he watch it over and over and keeps singing abc song even after video is over. He has other videos, but every time I try to put on another video he just said: No, abc Elmo, abc Elmo!!!Learn while having fun, that's important!!!
