#entertainingathome: Sesame Street release over 100 free ebooks to children

Brilliant news.

The current pandemic can cause children to feel very anxious and worried.

Only recently my son has said that he is worried he'll never see his school friends again and is upset that he can no longer have sleepovers at his grandparent's house.

All of our lives have been turned upside down, so it's especially nice these days to lose ourselves in a good book.

Thankfully, the team behind one of our favourite shows, Sesame Street, is now offering over 100 free ebooks for kids and their parents.

As part of the Caring For Each Other initiative by Sesame Workshop, families can enjoy over 110 free Sesame Street ebooks on all major ebook platforms.

These platforms will include Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, Barnes & Noble Nook, Google Play and Kobo.

The books cover many topics, including math, music, reading and animals, so you're bound to find something to entertain your little one—and even yourself.

Those involved in the initiative said that they wanted to help children during this extremely stressful time.

According to Motherly, Dr. Rosemarie Truglio, senior vice president for curriculum and content, sesame workshop said;

"Around the world, young children's lives are being turned upside down, and parents and caregivers are looking for ways to give their children—and themselves—a sense of stability in this new normal.

But there are things parents and caregivers can do to face each day with optimism. Sesame Street is here to provide the caring adults in children's lives with the resources they need to help children, and foster their healthy development at home."

I've personally found a huge comfort in reading both for myself and to my kids at bedtime.

I think it's absolutely fantastic that the Sesame Street team are making all these book available to children across the world and I'm sure it will be appreciated by parents the world over.
