My First Review - Sesame Street eBooks

Here goes my very first review!

Product: Sesame Street eBooks

Description: "An eBook is a digital version of a printed book. When you read a Sesame Street eBook with your child, you can make story time extra engaging with bright pages, audio narration, interactivity, animation, and more. Best of all, Sesame Street eBooks are ready to read right here, right now!"

Price: $39.99 per year

Sweet Thing and I got the chance to try out a FREE one month subscription to Sesame Street eBooks.
If you love Elmo and all his friends, you'll love these eBooks. They've got a few different types of books to choose from, and a whole list of subjects as well.

First we've got just the regular eBooks that you can click to turn the page and read to your child.
Second is Audio eBooks (this is the one we used the most) where the pages turn for you and someone reads the book to you.
Third is Animated eBooks where the pictures are moving and the story is read out. Each of these books are about a certain letter of the alphabet.
And fourth are the Interactive eBooks where the child would click and drag items to their designated spot.

Sweet Thing is a little young to quite grasp the concept of the eBook, she loves grabbing books and eating them, but she enjoyed watching the animated and audio eBooks. The eBooks are just like the classic Sesame Street books. Elmo and his antics, the teaching of morals and responsibility, as well as the plain old silliness and fun.

I love that there are over 100 eBooks to choose from and they are always adding more. Check out a demo of Sesame Street eBooks here.

This is a great system for reading if you have extremely limited space say in a small apartment, or maybe you travel a lot and would like to limit the amount of items you bring. It's also great at home every now and then if you are really busy and need a good way to entertain the kids for a few minutes.
