As any parent knows, it’s practically a full-time job trying to keep kids entertained (or at least it sure feels that way sometimes).
Adding to that challenge is the fact that doctors want parents to limit their children’s screen time — TV, movies, online videos, video games, etc. — to curb some of the negative effects of consuming too much media.
Good news for harried parents out there: you can now download 110 Sesame Street e-books for free!
The e-books are available as part of the Sesame Workshop’s “Caring for Each Other” initiative, which aims to help kids and families stay active and healthy with more time at home on their hands.
The free e-books are available for a wide array of devices: Apple, Google Play, Nook, Kobo and Amazon.
Titles like “All Tucked in on Sesame Street” and “Sleep Tight” make perfect bedtime stories, while others like “Elmo Visits the Dentist” can help teach children important lessons about the world around them. There are even e-books available in Spanish.
More than 100 eBooks translates to hours and hours of reading for children, which means Sesame Street made parents’ lives a whole lot easier for the time being.
What’s more, Sesame Street is offering a whole host of other helpful tools and resources for parents, including activity and coloring pages, tip sheets for talking to kids about complicated topics and educational games that cover topics like handwashing.
